About East Greenwich–Frenchtown Park
This quiet little gem doesn’t get a lot of attention, but it is quite beautiful and easy to get to. Not too far from Main Street, and abutting residential developments, there are 125 acres to explore on the grounds of the old Tillinghast factory, where cotton thread was manufactured beginning in the early 1800s. From the parking lot, follow the yellow Cotton Mill Trail for about 0.6 miles. You can turn around here or hook up with the red trail through Frye Nature Preserve for an extra 0.75 miles. Before or after following these trails, take some time to visit the Tillinghast Mill ruins. Follow the path along the stream that starts at the break in the railing of the bridge at the pond. In about 400 feet, you’ll reach the remains of old houses, bridges, and stone walls.
