Saunderstown is the birthplace of artist Gilbert Stuart. Mr. Stewart (1755-1828) is widely known as an excellent portraitist. The famous unfinished portrait of George Washington was Mr. Stewart's work. This portrait has remained on the one-dollar bill for more than a century, as well as been used on postage stamps.

The Gilbert Stewart Museum is one the most visited attractions in Saunderstown. The museum is the birthplace of the artist, and also hosts a nature trail, and a fully functioning grist mill.

Saunderstown is also home to Casey Farm, an 18th-century plantation that is currently in full operation as an organic farm. Those who are members of the community-supported agricultural program can take advantage of the organic herbs, vegetables, and flowers the farm currently raises. Guided tours of the farmyard and cemetery are available.

Saunderstown is part of the North Kingston School District.
