The William Whalley Homestead is an historic farmstead at 33 Burchard Avenue, 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 barn and second outbuilding dating to the late 19th century, 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 house was listed on the National Historic Register in 1988.[1]
