Providence Rhode Island Home Improvement

 

Roger Williams founded Providence in 1636 after his banishment from Massachusetts for "new and dangerous ideas." Providence was incorporated as a city in 1831 and became Rhode Island's sole state capital in 1900.

In Providence, one witnesses the artful blend of the past and present--rich in architectural, educational, and social significance. Atop the magnificent white marble State House, the bronze "Independent Man" champions the cause for which Providence was founded--religious liberty and individual freedom. The fine, restored 18th century homes along Benefit Street are only a short stroll from Brown University, the seventh oldest American college. The first Baptist Church in America, a national historic landmark built in 1775, and the Arcade, the nation's first enclosed shopping mall are only part of this living story. While a more recent architectural gem is includes the Rhode Island School of Design, founded in 1877 and recognized as one of the nation's foremost art schools.

Providence, a city of over 150,000 people, is located in southeastern New England, at the head of Narragansett Bay on the Atlantic seacoast. Providence is the business, financial, government and cultural hub of a metropolitan area of over 1,000,000 persons. Providence's economic assets include accessibility to excellent transportation facilities, including the Port of Providence, with its 40-foot channel, a high concentration of skilled workers, and six colleges and universities. Providence's major manufacturing industries: metals, machinery, textiles, jewelry, and silverware were established by 1830 and helped attract the international immigrants that have shaped Providence's neighborhoods. At the turn of the 20th century, Providence boasted the world's largest tool factory (Brown and Sharpe), file factory (Nicholson File), engine factory (Corliss Steam Engine Company), screw factory (American Screw), and silverware factory (Gorham). Today Providence is one of the largest centers of jewelry design and manufacture in the United States. Major employers in Providence include over a half dozen hospitals, Citizens and Fleet banks, the Diocese of Providence, state government, and a diverse range of manufacturing and service companies.

New ideas and economic initiatives flow outward from Providence's many colleges. The culinary school at Johnson and Wales University has helped Providence claim some of the best restaurants in New England. Current interfaces between universities and business include the Center for Cellular Medicine at Brown University and the Center for Design and Business at Bryant College and the Rhode Island School of Design. Providence has taken on the name "The Renaissance City" in the 1990s as new office buildings, apartments, hotels, the Rhode Island Convention Center, Waterplace Park, and the Fleet Skating Rink liven the Downcity District. The Providence Place Mall, with 150 department stores, speciality stores and restaurants opened in 1999. Downcity Providence also includes an Arts and Entertainment District where artists are encouraged to combine their homes, studios, and galleries. Providence's fabric of historic architecture has been enhanced through the renovation of buildings including the Providence Foundry and the Shepherd's Building. Providence is successfully integrating its history into its future to create a dynamic, livable city.
