During the colonial era, Aquidneck Island and the surrounding area was described by travelers as "The Garden of America". From the agrarian landscapes of the colonial period, through the cemeteries, estates and formal gardens of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the area contains some of the most impressive designed landscapes in New England.
