During the American Revolution, a large white oak called "the Liberty Tree" stood near this place, which was then near the edge of a field. Beacons warning of trouble in Rhode Island could be seen by watchers at nearby Horton's Signal. After receiving an alarm from watchmen, Rehoboth's minutemen assembled here before responding to British attacks.
