Things to Do in and Around North Providence Rhode Island

North Providence is a town in Providence County, Rhode Island. The town of North Providence is made up of seven villages: Allendale, Centerdale, Fruit Hill, Greystone, Lymansville, Marieville, and Woodville/Geneva. While Rhode Island is the smallest state in the United States, North Providence is the smallest town in the state. Spread over 6 miles, the town was established in the late 1700s by Providence farmers who wanted to form a separate town because they felt that government officials in Providence favored merchants over farmers.
Despite its small size, North Providence is extremely self-sufficient. It has markets, gas stations, banks, convenience stores, mom-and-pop shops and several gyms. Two main roads cut through the entire town: Mineral Spring Avenue and Smith Street. North Providence is the eighth most populated community in Rhode Island.
Here are a few fun places to see and visit in and around the town of North Providence:

The North Providence Town Hall is dedicated to Frank C. Angell, who was in the real estate business and served in several capacities including as Town Councilman, Treasurer and Deputy Town Clerk in the 1900s. Angell bequeathed the land in his will to build a Town Hall. It was eventually constructed in 1931. It has since undergone exterior renovation, new landscaping, painting and brickwork. The original North Providence Town Hall at 2226 Mineral Spring Avenue contains the old jail and council chambers. The interior of that building has also been restored.

The Joseph Smith House, 109 Smithfield Road, North Providence
This is a 2-1/2 story wood frame house, six bays wide, with a shed-style addition to the rear giving it a saltbox appearance. The oldest portion of this house was built in 1705. It’s a classic Rhode Island stone ender house whose large chimney has since been completely enclosed in the structure. The lower levels of this chimney are believed to have predated King Philip’s War (1675) when the previous house was burned down. The 1705 house was built by Joseph Smith, grandson of John Smith, one of Rhode Island’s first settlers. It was enlarged in 1762 by Daniel Jenckes, a judge from a prominent local family. This is the only known surviving stone ender in North Providence. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
