East Greenwich is one of the first settlement areas in the United States, having settlers building properties and homes around town by 1677. Of all the houses in East Greenwich today, though, the oldest documented is the Clement Weaver House. It was built in 1679 by Clement Weaver, a former soldier who fought in King Philip?s War. He was also one of the town?s original settlers, with the 100-acre ?land by the sea? being his payment for service.

In 1784, Weaver?s descendants decided to sell the house to Daniel Howland, who was related to one of the original members of the Mayflower Pilgrims of 1620. He then passed it on to his son Daniel and then the continuous inheritance of the property continued on in the family for two centuries.

The Clement Weaver House was used for a variety of tasks and uses in the past. Today, however, it is up for sale.
