Clingstone in Rhode Island
You wouldn’t normally peg Rhode Island as a tourist attraction but it has its fair share of sights that lure visitors every year. Being a coastal state means that it has majestic views of the sea and one might come to admire the seemingly endless hues of blue to relieve themselves of the stress of everyday living. Clingstone, however, provides a rather surprising contrast amidst the peaceful landscape of Rhode Island’s coast. It is a mansion built over one hundred years ago and sits atop a mound of land, earning it the nickname “the house on the rock”. Built by J. S. Lovering Wharton in the 1900s, his intention of creating a solitary home in the middle of the sea was quite simple: he didn’t want to be disturbed. Mr. Wharton enjoyed his summer home every year until he passed away in 1938.
