elp out when those pesky street addresses are missing. Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.This land was originally part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, known as Pocasset and home to the Wamponoag-Pocasset tribe. The Wamponoag-Pocassets were the Indians of Pilgrim fame who helped the English settlers survive the harsh early days and participated in the first Thanksgiving dinner.Things were not so civil a half-century later when the warrior Metacom, given the English name Philip by his tribal chief father, led a rebellion against the British. he was aided in his cause by his widowed sister-in-law, Weetamoo, that translates roughly to “sweetheart.” During the King Philip War in the summer of 1675 Metacom and Weetaboo used the swamp here to hideout from British patrols. They might well have succeeded in defeating the British were it not for rival tribes in the region and on August 12, 1676 King Phillip was killed and the remnants of his tribe dispersed or sold into slavery.Tiverton was originally incorporated in 1694, still a part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

The locals passed a law that a tavern could only be built where there was a four-way intersection and then made sure there wouldn’t be any built not building any roads across the Eight Rod Way that had been surveyed in 1679 as a road between Sakonnet and Plymouth Colony. The village had earned a new name.In 1974 Tiverton Four Corners was designated a National Historic District. The privately owned buildings have evolved to contain antique stores, galleries and shops which translates into abundant off-street parking and our walking tour will begin at the four corners and go both ways on Main Road...
