The earthen mounds on this site are the original fortifications that defended Tiverton against British forces that occupied Aquidneck Island. With hand tools & human toil colonists dug the breastworks then pulled artillery pieces up the hill to the redoubt.

Please enoy your visit in a way that preserves the sanctity of the place.
