Woonsocket, Rhode Island

Woonsocket is a city in Providence County located in the northernmost region of Rhode Island directly south of the Massachusetts border and 15 miles north of Providence. With a population of more than 43,000, Woonsocket is the sixth largest city in Rhode Island. In 1867, Woonsocket was established as a town and later incorporated as a city in 1888. The city's central location and easy accessibility make it an ideal location for business development and residence. One of the principal cities of the Blackstone Valley National Heritage Corridor, Woonsocket boasts a number of historical and recreational sites.

Due largely to the abundance of water power, Woonsocket became a city of factories. The first Woonsocket textile mill was the Social Manufacturing Company formed in 1810. Thanks to improved transportation capabilities, by 1842 there were twenty mills in Woonsocket, most producing cotton fabric. Thus, Woonsocket had become one of the largest textile manufacturing centers in the United States. In the early 1920s, the cotton goods industry collapsed due to labor and management conflicts, outdated facilities, and competition from southern mills. Woonsocket’s economy experienced its fair share of both depression and prosperity during the early to mid-20th century along with most of New England. Today, Woonsocket is a major urban center. While manufacturing continues to be a major part of the Woonsocket's economy, high tech, finance and retail have become equally important. A number of companies have established headquarters in Woonsocket in recent decades, the most notable being CVS Caremark Corporation.
