Explore Little Compton’s landscape through maps, photographs, and paintings in our special summer exhibit “Little Compton: A Changing Landscape.”

Maps from 1660 to the present tell the story of changing knowledge about the town, and the changing ways we’ve divided it, moved around, and divided it. Interested in one area? Pick up one of the dozen guides to places in town – from Adamsville to Warren’s Point – to learn more about that local history.

Artists have portrayed the Little Compton landscape since the nineteenth century, creating paintings and photographs that let us enjoy changing views of the town over time. Nineteenth-century paintings by Worthington Whittredge, George Burleigh, Sidney Burleigh, Reginald Marsh and Sarah Wilkinson and contrasted with works by contemporary photographers and painters. And check out the sheep in the attic, too!
