Kitt Matteson Tavern

-A A +A
1741; raised porch a later addition. 58 Weaver Hill Rd. (.2 mile beyond I-95 underpass)

A sloping site gives this five-bay, central-chimney house two and one-half stories uphill, three and one-half down. Sturdy and plain, it typifies the most prosperous West Greenwich architecture, here magnified by a generous site with rolling fields and fine nineteenth-century shingled barns and outbuildings. It continues to command a fork known locally as Kitt's Corner.
