Coventry, Rhode Island

Coventry officially separated from Warwick and incorporated in 1741. As Rhode Island's largest town, Coventry has an area of nearly 65 square miles and a population of more than 33,500. Located in Kent county, Coventry is bordered on the north by Foster, Scituate, and Cranston; on the east by West Warwick and Warwick; on the south by East and West Greenwich; and on the west by Connecticut.

Early on Coventry was largely an agricultural town. However, during the 19th century, Coventry changed dramatically. The eastern end of Coventry became very industrialized. The primary industry at the time was textiles. The early decades of the 19th century saw many small textile mills built along the Pawtuxet River. Coventry, similar to many towns in Rhode Island, established around its mills. The town has retained many of the old textile mill villages still known as Quidnick Village (the oldest), Anthony Village, Arkwright Village, Harris Village, Washington Village, Coventry Center Village, Summit Village, and Greene Village. In the 20th century, the town went through more transformation. Most of the old factories closed during this time. In the late 20th century many people moved to Coventry, most of them being from the Providence area, because of the large amount of land available to build on. The eastern part of the town became suburbanized. By comparison, the western end of the town remained rural, with the only centers of population being located at Greene and Summit Villages both of which have railroad stations on the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad.
