In 1637 near this spot, ROGER WILLIAMS set up a trading post where he dwelt for many years, trading and treating with the Narragansett Indians. His dealings so completely won and held the friendliness of the powerful Narragansett sachems that for more than a generation the white settlements of Rhode Island were spared to become a flourishing State.

I Saw The Marker

This marker is located adjacent sly across from Smith's Castle, on the entrance to the Richard Smith Grove, an easier landmark to keep your eyes peeled for!
