The Wickford house is located across Main
Street from Saint Paul's Church. It was once a well known Rhode
Island inn, however it has been a private residence for many
years now. The house was originally built on land owned by the
daughter of one of the founders of the town and dates back to
the 1740s. Portions of the house are believed by some of
Wickford's old timers to be even older; perhaps dating back as
early as 1712. Beautiful flower gardens can be found to the rear
of Wickford House. These gardens are one of the stops on the
"Hidden Gardens of Wickford,"
walking tour sponsored annually by the local preservation
