Wickford Village, Rhode Island Historic District

Wickford is a small American village in the town of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, which is named after Wickford in Essex, England.
Established in 1709, Wickford Village provides picturesque waterfront streets lined with one-of-a-kind shops featuring jewelry, housewares, clothing and more. You’ll also find galleries, antique shops, cafes and restaurants nestled amongst beautifully maintained churches, colonial homes and gardens. Have a boat? Tie up to the town dock while you explore the village.
Whether it’s stress free holiday shopping or watching the boats go by on the harbor, Wickford offers something for the whole family in every season. Even your dog will enjoy a refreshing drink of water outside the many shops and restaurants in our pet friendly village.
Hmmm. Sounds perfect, doesn't it? I've never been there but it's now on my bucket list.

The front of this house looks like England. How wonderful, I would love to visit there someday.
