The Roger Williams National Memorial is one of the smallest parks in the US. It was built in the 1960s to commemorate the life and work of Roger Williams, Rhode Island?s founder and a very respectable theologian who believed in the separation of state and church, religious freedom, and fair dealings with Native Americans.
Roger Williams opened Rhode Island, initially as a refuge, to people who want to have a place where they can be open with their religious beliefs without getting reprimanded by the state. This became the state?s building principle, making the man a very important figure in the place?s history.
The Roger Williams National Memorial may be a bit small with only 4.5 acres of space, but it is packed with activities that the whole family can enjoy.
