Providence, Rhode Island
Providence is the capital and largest city in the state of Rhode Island in the United States. It is a port city and is located at Narragansett Bay. Providence has 180,393 residents, and is the core of a larger metropolitan area with 1,621,122 residents also moving into Massachusetts (U.S. Census, 2017).
Providence became an important industrial city in the United States early on, with wool, cotton, jewelery, button and machine factories and oil refineries. Today, education, health and finance are the most important sectors. The city is the seat of Brown University, founded in 1764.
Providence was founded in 1636 by the dissenter Roger Williams, who was unwanted in the Plymouth colony. In 1680, the bookkeeper Pardon Tillinghast built a jetty here, and the city became an important port in the “timber trade” between Africa, the Caribbean and the American colonies. In The Old State House, the colony’s Declaration of Independence was signed on May 4, 1776, two months before the American Declaration of Independence.
