Overview


The town of East Providence was incorporated in 1862, the same year it was "traded" to Rhode Island by Massachusetts. Nearly one hundred years later, in 1961, East Providence was selected as an "All American City" by Look magazine. Although residents of East Providence are proud of the development their city has seen in the twentieth century, there still remains among them a great deal of allegiance to the community's small-town heritage. The East Providence Historical Society pays tribute to that nostalgic sense in this delightful collection of photographs from the first one hundred years of the town's existence.
