The incorporation of Tiverton and Tiverton homes in 1694, as part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, followed a lengthy dispute between Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It was not until 1746 that Tiverton, along with the towns of Cumberland, Barrington, Bristol and Little Compton, was annexed to Rhode Island and incorporated in 1747.
Tiverton's economy was mostly supported by farming, fishing, and boat construction in the early days. Menhaden oil, a fish derivative, was manufactured in Tiverton until 1900. As early as 1827, wool and cotton mills also supported Tiverton's economy.
For many years, retirees and families have purchased Tiverton homes and houses as vacation properties and permanent residences due to Tiverton's quiet, tranquil atmosphere. Sailors buy slips at Standish Boat Yard or nearby marinas. Kayakers paddle downriver from Stonebridge near Grinnell's Beach to the sea.
Trade establishments are now the major employers in the town. Recent years have seen Tiverton grow as a summer resort and residential area and development has been concentrated in North Tiverton.
