10. Settlers Rock

On the way to the Block Island North Lighthouse, take a moment in front of Settlers Rock, placed at this spot in 1911 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the purchase and settlement of Block Island. It also lists the original purchasers and settlers of the island.

Other historic spots to look out for include the 350 miles of stone walls that snake through the island.
