The Holmes Property
The Holmes property is located along West Beach Road and Old West Beach Road on the Quonochontaug neck. With approximately 920 feet of frontage on public roads it provides for scenic value in the area. It is an undeveloped 1.32 acre parcel of forested and wet shrub land to remain in its natural state. The Protected Property contains a mix of maritime woodland, forested wetland, and scrub shrub swamp. The land is home to a mix of resident and common migratory birds and a variety of small mammals. Historic stone walls can also be found along two boundaries of this undisturbed property. Its untouched state is especially appreciated as one walks along Old West Beach Road. Here one is surrounded by the Holmes Property and the Harry Hathaway Preserve, a 33.78 acre parcel of land protected by the South County Conservancy and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, providing for serene and natural surroundings.
