Prior Land Uses: The Property was historically used agriculturally. Early historic aerial photographs from as far back as 1939 show the Property in use as field (most likely for hay). It is not entirely clear, but it appears that sometime between 1972 and 1981 the Property changed from field to lawn, based on aerial photographs. The general composition of the property is the same as it was in 1939.
Current Land Use: Today, the Premises consists of a field that is maintained at lawn height. The Property is owned by Little Compton Resorts, Inc. (Stone House). The Property is maintained by the Stone House for the benefit of its guests, as it offers a picturesque view of Round Pond.
