Cranston, once known as Pawtuxet, is one of the major commercial and industrial cities of Rhode Island today. It is located just south of Providence at the mouth of Narragansett Bay. Cranston is a part of the Providence metropolitan area, it is the third largest city in Rhode Island and has a population of nearly 80,000. Cranston today is a city of contrasts. Although a city since 1910, Cranston does not have an urban center. It is a modernized bayside community, yet boasts a wealth of historical sites and interesting architecture. It is heavily populated in the east, yet it is largely rural in the west. Popular historic sites include the Budlong Pool, one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in the country; Sprague Mansion, built in 1790 and home to a prominent family in Cranston; and Oaklawn Village, one of the country’s first residential suburbs. In 2006, Money magazine named Cranston one of the “100 Best Places to Live” in the United States.
