The Saunderstown Post Office has been in continuous operation
since June 23, 1892 with Stillman Saunders as the first Postmaster.

Saunderstown is a small village in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. It is located about 2 miles south of the Jamestown Bridge crossing off of the Old Boston Post Road
(Route 1A).  Saunderstown was the home of one of the states greatest shipwrights. John Aldrich Saunders began building schooners and steamships here. He built one of the fastest and largest boats, the steam screw ferry Newport. Because of the ferries at Saunderstown, many vacationers traveling from New York to Newport would stop for the day. Many stayed enjoying the "working village-on-the-bay.
