Summary

Significance: The Clement Weaver House is one of Rhode Island's seventeenth-century treasures, with a construction history that began in 1679. Originally it was a one-room, end-chimney house type with a lean-to on the north. Expanded three times before 1750 (expanded first over the lean-to; then to rear; then with kitchen ell), the house hints at its evolution through the pair of staircases by the chimney that rise to a wedge-shaped landing and then, separately, to the garret rooms. The sequence of construction was identified during the restoration by the architect Norman Morrison Isham.
