Tiverton Four Corners is a historic district encompassing the main village center of Tiverton, Rhode Island. The district extends along Main Road north and south from its junction with East and West Roads. The 50-acre (20 ha) area includes a number of predominantly 18th and early 19th-century houses, as well as the 1868 Union Public Library and mill-related resources at the Mill Pond which lies just southeast of the main intersection. The area was among the first to be laid out by English settlers in the late 17th century.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
