Woonsocket History

European settlement in what is now known as Woonsocket began when an Englishman bought land from three native tribes in the area in 1661, meaning that white settlers established in this area well before the majority of the rest of the country. However, the first official area bearing the name "Woonsocket" was not established until the 1820s with the name of Woonsocket Falls Village. Over the years, Woonsocket developed a large French-Canadian population, and the presence of this community can still be strongly felt here. In fact, the French-Canadian Genealogical Society is located in Woonsocket.

Year-Round Fun at Riv

Some people prefer to live in places that have four distinct seasons, and if you are one of these folks, Woonsocket is a great place for you. This New England town experiences flowery spring, warm summer, beautifully colorful fall, and snowy winter. Woonsocket's River Island Park is a great place to experience all of these seasonal changes in a peaceful outdoor setting. In spring, summer, and warmer days in fall, visitors to this park can use its canoe launch to take small craft out onto the pond. And in winter, River Island Park has an outdoor skating rink.

The Stadium Theatre

The Stadium Theatre is not only a historically relevant landmark that adds charm to Woonsocket's architectural landscape, but it is also a great place to take in live music, theater, comedy, and other performances. Originally constructed in 1926, the Stadium Theatre is named for the style of its seating. Even though the building was constructed during the height of the Art Deco period, this theater is actually more in line with the neoclassical style, which reflects the taste of the building's original owner. After facing demolition in the 1990s, the Woonsocket community rallied to save its treasured theater.
