ENJOY THE LEGACY OF SQUANTUM...

The peninsulas jutting out into Narragansett Bay were called Squantum, the Native American name for “Heap of Rocks.” In the mid-1800s captains and owners of Clipper Ships gathered here and the fame of Squantum spread widely.  In 1872, the Squantum Association was incorporated; a permanent clubhouse was erected, and was judged as the “brightest bit of architecture north of the famed villas of Newport.”

DINE IN COMFORT AND BEAUTY

The Grand Staircase in our Club House, which leads to our upper dining room, is a work of art, with its rich mahogany wood carvings, leaded glass, and tile mosaics.   The welcoming fireplace in the Club House foyer, the seating area, piano, and anterooms are enjoyed by members and guests.  The sun porch is comfortably furnished and is enhanced by wonderful bay views and the upper deck is the place for summer lunches, cocktails, and beautiful sunsets.

The Bakehouse, adjacent to the main clubhouse, has become a favorite for all kinds of gatherings;  business meetings, banquets, weddings, and special parties. The dining room adapts to conference and audiovisual presentations.  Its spacious sun porch, bar, and deck offer dramatic views of the Providence River and Narragansett Bay.

BASK IN THE SPLENDOR OF SQUANTUM…

There is a turn-of-the-century quality of graciousness at Squantum.  The grounds, the old buildings, the white crushed shell paths, the decorations, and the pictures-all tangible items that, together, define the spirit of Squantum!

American cartoonist Thomas Nast visited Squantum frequently.  Back in September of 1901, he presented for the “Culture Room” (a name we affectionately call our Club House Bar) a large, dashingly drawn cartoon, depicting himself leaving one of Squantum’s famous clambakes.

The beautiful grounds of Squantum have been, and continue to be, rendered by many noted artists throughout the years.
