Princes Hill Burial Ground
Also known as:  Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Barrington #3

3000 burials from 1728 to 1994.

Long before the present Barrington Town Hall was built, this land next to it was in use as a cemetery. To meet the needs of the town for a burial ground on the east side of the Barrington River, the town gave Allen 5 pounds for one half acre of land for a burial place at Prince's Hill in 1728. An addition to southeast was added in 1806. A second addition, to the northwest was made in 1826, and a third addition 11/4 acres was later made 26 Revolutionary War veterans and 62 Civil War veterans are buried here.
