Added to the historical records of Narragansett is the Ocean Road District. The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
To illustrate, the Ocean Road Historic District is residential historic district, encompassing an area of fashionable summer houses built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
