Welcome to Narragansett & Point Judith
Named after one of the most powerful Native American tribes in New England, Narragansett, meaning literally ‘People of the Small Point,’ is the essence of Rhode Island. Surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and punctuated by salt ponds and mudflats, it became a popular beach resort at the end of the 19th century. At that time, large oceanfront hotels were constructed alongside a holiday pier (which was rebuilt in the 1970s) along with the Stanford White–designed Towers Casino, of which only the twin towers remain standing. But you’re not here for the architecture.
