John “Whit” Davis told me this week, as he stood on a piece of the 400 or so farm acres he owns in Stonington, that this particular stretch of land, on the Pawcatuck River looking across the water at Watch Hill, R.I., has never been plowed or tilled or disturbed in any way.
Davis should know. He grew up on the farm. He and his ancestors have owned it since the 17th century.
