  • Documenting the voyage of Rufus from England and his arrival in North America.

The Old Farm at Barton's Corners

The house sits on the original land grant property that the immigrant Rufus bought from Miantiomo, Chief of the Narragansett Indians. That house is not the original as it burned down and a second one was built in 1803. The photo is of the 1803 house which has now been torn down, making way for a 7-11 and a Dunkin Donuts. Ain't that great! It was sold out of the family about 1955.
