The Rhode Island Red Monument is a historic commemorative sculpture in Little Compton, Rhode Island in the village of Adamsville, Rhode Island commemorating the Rhode Island Red, Rhode Island's state bird. The Rhode Island Red Club of America is a chicken-breeder organization founded in 1898 which raised the funds for the monument. They placed it in Adamsville because the Rhode Island Red was first bred near the village in the 1850s. The sculpture was completed in 1925 by Henry L. Norton. In 2001, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
