The William Whalley Homestead is an historic farmstead in Little Compton, Rhode Island. The main house is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, probably built sometime between 1815 and 1830. The property includes a late 19th century gabled barn and a stone and wood outbuilding, and is bounded by a low stone wall. The main house is a fairly typical Cape style house, five bays wide, with a central chimney. The property as a whole is a well-preserved example of a typical 19th-century farmstead in the area.[2]

The homestead was listed on the National Historic Register in 1988.[1]
