Yes, you can own one of R.I. most beautiful historic islands. Located in North Wickford Cove. 8.39 Acres of land. Near Wickford Village which is known to be one of the best historic villages in the country. The history of this Rabbit Island is almost unbelievable. Rabbit Island is located in Wickford Harbor, R.I. It’s a charming gem. In the 1630s, the wife of the Narragansett chief Canonicus, known as Queen Sachem, gifted Rabbit Island to Roger Williams (founding father of R.I.). She gave it to him to raise his goats, as they were causing havoc in her mainland gardens. Later in 1651 Roger Williams sold the island along with his trading post to William Smith, since then, property has remained relatively undisturbed. Rabbit Island consists of a central plateau, elevated six to ten feet above sea level. This plateau is surrounded by a gently sloping tidal flat that supports salt marshes in sheltered sections and beaches where it faces wind and waves. The central plateau hosts a cathedral like forest, featuring majestic Red Oaks. Scattered among them are Gray Birch, Sassafras, and Wild Black Cherry. Property like this only comes up for sale once in a lifetime or maybe never!!!!
