A US Historic District and a part of the National Register of Historic Places, the Pawtuxet Village has a lot of history to tell. Being founded in 1638, this historic site is really worth a peek.

The Pawtuxet Village is named after the Native American tribe that used to occupy the area. The word ?pawtuxet? means ?little falls?, and was also what the Sononoce Pawtuxet tribe is called. They used the area back then as a feasting ground.

The area was settled by the Roger Williams, Rhode Island?s founder. From that point on, many other pioneers started to purchase land on the site to build mills and create one of US? premiere shipping ports.

Today, the site is still considered as a very important section in the area.
