South Kingstown, Rhode Island: Mysterious Carter Jackson Monument

RoadsideAmerica.com Team Field Report

Address:
20 Hampton Way, South Kingstown, RI
Directions:
Southbound side of US Hwy 1 just south of its intersection with Hampton Way. Hidden behind a hedge and no place to park. Best bet is to turn west onto Hampton Way, then make a quick left into the Hampton Place parking lot. Park, then walk back to US 1 and walk south along the shoulder to the first driveway. Turn right into driveway, then right again behind the hedge; the monument is there.
