The Public Archaeology Laboratory, Inc. (PAL) has teamed with the Little Compton Historical Society (LCHS) on a collaborative project to document the history of the Manton Farm in Little Compton, Rhode Island. The property is owned by the Nature Conservancy and was the home of Henry Manton, who came to Little Compton as a boy in the 1860s and lived with the Gifford family who are believed to have been part of the Underground Railroad. Henry's wife, Ida Johnson, was a Native American whose family was from Dartmouth, Massachusetts. At numerous times during three generations of ownership, the Manton family was the only Afro-Native American family in Little Compton.
