This 1860 County Road image shows the parsonage to the left where the Reverend Solomon Townsend lived-just north of and adjacent to the lot where the Bowen Tavern operated. To the right are later residents of the parsonage enjoying a leisurely afternoon along the banks of the Hundred Acre Cove. The unpaved road was the major turnpike connecting Old Barrington Village to Providence to the north and Newport to the south.
