ABSTRACT
Seaside Watch Hill, Rhode Island has long been a select summer spa for good families and old money. In 1884, a syndicate of Cincinnati businessmen began buying up land around Watch Hill and fashioning impressive summer `cottages' for wealthy summer visitors. The town remains a place noted for its relative remoteness from the outside world, and a feeling of durable families, croquet and quaint town characters.
