Ye Old Narragansett Bank

-A A +A
1805. 99 Main St.

The Benjamin Fowler House (1768) was incorporated as an ell into the rear of this building when the bank was established. At some point the original entrance appears to have received a Greek Revival replacement. It later became the home of Colonel Hunter C. White, the local historian and a good friend of Norman Isham. The fine turned fence is probably Isham's work.
