Along with waitress, they continued to make the Seabury Sausage. In December 1967, Mildred and Bill bought their home on 252 Long Highway. Mildred and Bill spent the rest of their active years at their new home and started a famous local business, “Seabury Sausage”. They made and sold this Seabury Sausage at some local businesses and also from Long Highway. They also made and sold quahog chowder and stuffed quahogs. This Little Compton business also sold penny candy where all the neighboring kids came to buy it.
