William Hunt House – Seekonk


The William H. Hunt was constructed on 50 acres of land at 385 Jacobs Street in Seekonk (then Rehoboth) in 1690.


The eastern half of the house was built as a stone-ender. Early photos of the house show how it appeared with the western addition.


According to history, the building was a roadside tavern used by travelers going from Providence to Taunton-Brockton. Later the building was used as a residence and the land for farming.
