Town Clerk's Office
PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 emergency, we are encouraging transactions by mail. Only one customer will be admitted to the Town Clerk’s office at a time, regardless of the nature of their transaction. Documents, including dog license applications and renewals, can be left outside our office door or in the drop box outside the building. We will process land evidence documents, confirm recording, and return documents per your instructions. Land evidence records are available online back to 01/01/1985 at https://i2e.uslandrecords.com/RI/Narragansett/D/Default.aspx. If you need us to check something older than that, please call 401-782-0624 or email me personally and we will do our best to assist and save you the trip. Couples seeking a marriage license should contact us by phone or email to make arrangements.
