Year Purchased: 1890
About the owner: Great Grandson of original owner Edward T. Davis who arrived in the US from Europe in the 1840's from England.
Why the Owner Chose Jamestown, RI, USA:
Wayward Cottage property has been part of my family since my Great Grandfather bought the summer cottage and barn as a summer place for his family. The barn was converted to a carriage house prior to WWI. The summer cottage was destroyed by the Hurricane of "38. The carriage house was then made into Wayward Cottage. My family spent summers during my childhood so I know it is a great place for kids. Actually, I have found it a great place to be with family and friends throughout my life. The "Islanders" are friendly and laid back. The Cottage is secluded enough for privacy, but is located near enough to Newport and Narragansett for all the activities historical, beach resort towns can offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage and grounds have always had a warmth, charm and natural beauty that has the power to both excite and soothe me.
