Little Compton

For those looking for a cozy, coastal, New England town, Little Compton may fill the need.

The nearly 29 square miles of Little Compton are populated by nearly 3,600 residents.

Historical sites referencing Little Compton's roots can still be found in the town. For example, the Wilbur house, built in 1692 by Samuel Wilbur, still stands today.
