East Providence, Rhode Island Houses for Sale

East Providence is located in the eastern part of the state of Rhode Island and a city in Providence County and is on the east part of Seekonk and Providence rivers that is on the opposite of the town of Providence. The area where the present-day East Providence stands was inhabited by the Wampanoag Indians. East Providence was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, who was the founder of the Rhode Island colony, who established it himself in the area. The area was settled by a company in 1644 by a company that came from Weymouth to become a part of the Massachusetts township located in Rehoboth. It was then decided that western Seekonk will belong to Rhode Island, and the same region was incorporated as the East Providence township.
