Fry's Hamlet Historic District is a historic district at 2068, 2153, 2196, and 2233 South County Trail in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. The district encompasses about 272 acres (110 ha) of a predominantly rural and agricultural landscape. The central characteristic of the district is a cluster of three farmsteads, including four primary dwellings, four barns, and numerous additional outbuildings. Three of the four houses were built in the 18th century, and are associated with the Fry and Spencer families that long farmed this area.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
