Vitied Wilburs store, had coffee at the art gallery and went to the Thrift Shop. You cannot go to LIttle Compton without a brief visit to the Commons.
Wilburs is frightfully expenxive ( yes a gallon of milk for eight dollars!) but it also has...More
Attempting to visit all country stores in New England and visited Wilbur’s General Store. Pleasant surprise with everything from food, hardware, gifts galore. Would travel again just for the fun of it and lovely drive to Sakonnet Light. They even sell the book we are...More

This is simply a wonderful spot to explore- read the headstones of people who lived here 250 years ago- Revolutionary War soldiers, and even a mistress or two. The Congregational Church towers above the Commons, and is simply beautiful. When you're done walking around, be...More
