With North Providence, the very first history of any sort ever published on the town, resident historians Thomas E. and Barbara A. Greene present a comprehensive and well-informed look at the development and growth of their hometown from 1765 to 1995. Numerous vintage photographs—many rare and previously unpublished— have been carefully selected to create a fascinating portrait of the town and its villages through the years. North Providence, which from 1765 to 1874 contained the old village of Pawtucket, today consists of 5.8 square miles of land in northern Rhode Island. The villages of North Providence are home to a variety of cultural and ethnic groups; each one maintains its own character and distinct identity. The authors' presentation includes a concise textual history of each village, and incorporates significant original research on the history of North Providence schools in each district.
