In 1994, the Southworth family sold the development right of Plat 15, Lots 3-1, 3-3 and 3-4 to the Little Compton Agricultural Conservancy Trust. The property is located on Swamp Road. The total of the three lots is fifty four and one-half (54.5), as referenced by the Little Compton Tax Assessors Maps, is: Lot 3-1 twenty (20) acres, Lot 3-3 seventeen and three-tenths acres (17.3) Lot 3-4 seventeen and one-half acres (17.5). The State of R.I. partnered with the Little Compton Agricultural Conservancy Trust in purchasing these development rights. As such, should the Little Compton Agricultural Conservancy Trust fail to implement the deed restrictions, the State of RI has the right to do so.
