Warwick Rhode Island
Digital History Project
Royal Webster Knight, described by his friends as an "amateur oceanographer and an ardent conservationist and sportsman," pondered for a long while over the disposition of his large Warwick East Avenue estate. Much of the pasturelands and the barns had been sold in the early 1960's and became the large, sprawling Midland Mall Complex. Knight, even after the sale of that large piece of land, retained over eighty acres of very desirable property near the intersection of Routes I 95 and I 295. The value of the property if used for commercial purposes was estimated at over $500,000. Royal W. Knight, however, according to Francis J. McCabe, Jr., one of Warwick's well known real estate agents, preferred to have the large, 2 1/2 story family home to always remain a private residence. This lovely dwelling once served as the country house of Governor William Sprague (1799 1856) and for members of the Knight family. During the late nineteenth century, it was the home of Warwick's leading political figure, Webster Knight, who was on Warwick's Town Council for eleven years and was its president for four. McCabe, who shared mutual likes and dislikes with Royal Knight, including a great preference for the humor of W. C. Fields, was told by Knight that the latter felt he would give up the property as he was "hardly ever there now." Fortunately, the Rhode Island Junior College (now the Community College of Rhode Island) was looking for a new location. The college had been housed at the former Brown & Sharpe Complex on Promenade Street in Providence since 1964. As enrollment increased and more students began to favor the junior college, more space was needed, preferably in a central location. The Knight property, almost in the geographical center of Rhode Island and at the junction of two major interstate highways, was considered as one of the most desirable settings for the new school. Informal talks between Francis J. McCabe, Jr., Royal Webster Knight, and William Flanagan, then president of the college, resulted in Knight deciding to give the land, the house and the buildings to the state of Rhode Island for educational purposes. After much planning and contemplation, it was decided that the imposing dwelling with tastefully combined aspects of the Federal and Greek Revival Periods, would be used as a residence for the college's president and that the handsome and well preserved out buildings on the farm would be used and maintained by the college. In that manner, Knight was able to preserve, at least in part, some of the nicest visual reminders of his grandfather's "gentleman's farm." The Knight home, the carriage house, gardener's cottage, the milk house, cider press, mare's stable and the impressive stonewalls have been preserved. The State of Rhode Island acquired this prime real estate property and Warwick became the center of one of the fastest growing and most significant educational complexes.

BIOGRAPHY: From "Historical Gazetteer And Biographical Memorial of Cattaraugus County, New York" (pub. 1893):
"Lt.-Col. Harrison CHENEY was born in Freedom, Jan. 3, 1830. After receiving his education in common schools and in Arcade Seminary he taught nine winter terms of district school and labored on his father's farm in summer. But this quiet farmer's life was not to continue. At the breaking out of the Civil war he was too true a patriot not to be aroused to action, and in ug,1862, he recruited every man of Co. D, 154th N.Y. Vols., and had more applicants than he could receive. It is said that "he was the only man who recruited, personally, every man of a company in this State." He was commissioned captain of the company at its organization. He was engaged at the battle of Chancellorsville and was captured by the enemy at Gettysburg. On the ninth day after his capture, while marching under guard through a piece of woods near Martinsburg, he broke from the ranks and ran, was hotly pursued into the woods, but escaped, and was a fugitive for twenty-two days before he reached the Union army. Captain CHENEY was promoted major in Feb., 1865, and lieutenant-colonel in March, 1865, and was mustered out at the close of the war in June, 1865. Colonel CHENEY married, first, Mary J., daughter of Harvey FOOTE, of Deerfield, N. Y. Mrs. CHENEY died in 1891. Their children were Ella M. (Mrs. Cassius C. WOOD), Mary E. (Mrs. Walter L. KNIGHT), and Harry F. He married, second, Frances D. JAMES, of Freedom. Colonel CHENEY has been prominent in his town and his district, which he represented in the Assembly in 1876 and 1888. How well he performed his duties can best be told by quoting from the "Review of the Assembly." He is spoken of among the most earnest working members, and "as a man of tone and character he had no superior. Far above the wily machinations of bad men, he had the interests of the people at heart, ever watching and working for sound legislation and good government. With this class of men in our legislative halls we should soon feel a welcome relief from the sad depression into which incompetent and dishonest men have plunged us; and we could once more enjoy the privileges and blessings of an honest prosperity." Colonel CHENEY made agriculture his vocation after the war, and since 1881, with the exception of three years, he has held the position of railway mail clerk. Courteous, affable, kind-hearted, and dominated by strong Christian principles, he has ever been a popular citizen and official, and holds a high place in the regards of his numerous friends. He rightly stands among the representative men of Cattaraugus county, and in the written words of Dr. VAN AERNAM to him: "You helped in clearing the forests of Cattaraugus, helped in opening up its roads, aided in establishing its schools and churches, aided in crushing out the Rebellion, and I think it is due to yourself and your special friends as well as the public that your memory should be perpetuated in its history."
