Significance: The town center of East Greenwich is significant as a concentrated, well-preserved collection of resources associated with the development of the Town of East Greenwich from its founding in the mid-seventeenth century to about 1935. Established initially as a small mercantile center to support the surrounding farms, East Greenwich grew into one of the state's leading trade and shipbuilding centers, and became the county seat of Kent County in 1750. The district contains a variety of building types and designs that reflect the various periods of the town's development and provide a wealth of information about Rhode Island's mercantile and architectural history. The East Greenwich Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
