Jamestown Rhode Island Home Improvement

 

Conanicut Island, because of its location at the mouth of Narragansett Bay, has been considered strategically important since the first white colonists settled in Rhode Island. John Winthrop, governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, wrote to Roger Williams asking that the island be settled and fortified to deter any attack through the "back door of Boston". In 1656, Benedict Arnold, William Coddigan, and several others from Newport purchased the island, whose name commemorates the Sachem Canonicus, of the Narragansett Indians.

Jamestown was incorporated on November 4, 1678, and was renamed in honor of Pronce James, later James II. Because it is an island, it has never been developed as a commercial area or port, but rather as a quiet residential town.The new Newport Bridge, completed in 1969, gave Jamestown access to both sides of Narragansett Bay. In 1940, the Jamestown Verrazano Bridge was completed connecting Jamestown with the mainland.

The island is 9.5 square miles with a good highway system following most of its shoreline. The south end of Beaver Tail Light is a high rocky coast projecting into the Atlantic Ocean, where some of the best surfcast fishing in the world can be found. Narragansett Bay surrounds the northern end of the island.

Historically, Jamestown is in the middle of the Bicentennial picture. You may walk Narragansett Avenue where the British marched in 1775 while burning the town; Indian and colonial artifacts from pre-historic and early settlements are displayed in the Sydney L. Wright Museum; and Memorabilia from the 300 year old Jamestown Ferry System can be seen in the Jamestown Museum.
