The Spink Farm is a historic farm at 1325 Shermantown Road in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. The only surviving element of the farmstead on this 55-acre (22 ha) farm is the main house, a 2-1/2 story five-bay wood frame structure built in 1798 by Isaac Spink. The house exhibits modest Federal styling, its doorway flanked by small sidelight windows and simple pilasters, and topped by a shallow hood. The interior follows a typical center-chimney plan, with its original Federal period fireplace mantels intact. The house has been extended to the rear by a kitchen ell and porch, both added in the 20th century. The house is one of a small number of 18th-century farmsteads left in the town.[2]

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