Significance: Kenyon Village is significant in Rhode Island as a well preserved, small, nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century mill village which retains much of its material heritage. The buildings and land which comprise the village document the development of the area from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Alterations to the buildings have been the result of changing economic conditions, and reflect the history of the village. Kenyon Village is an important cultural resource that preserves a wealth of information about Rhode Island's early milling and manufacturing history. Unlike most other mill villages in Richmond, the mills in Kenyon are still operating, and the village is generally well preserved.
