Providence, State Rhode Island

Providence is the lively capital and economic centre of America`s smallest state, Rhode Island. Founded in 1636 as a farming community it soon became a flourishing seaport and then evolved into a hub of industry in the 19th century. Brown University was founded in 1764 and is the seventh oldest college in the US, and one of the prestigious Ivy League schools. Rhode Island State House was constructed in 1904 entirely of white marble and has the second largest self supporting dome in the world.
