|Satellite view showing Providence, capital and most populous city of the State of Rhode Island in the United States. The city is located in the central-eastern part of the state, in Providence county at the head of Narragansett Bay along the Providence River, 57 mi (92 km) south west of Boston and about 155 mi (250 km) north east of New York City.
In 1636 Providence was founded by Roger Williams, an exiled an English Protestant theologian and an early proponent of religious freedom and the separation of church and state.
In 1762 the Old State House was built in Providence. The government of Rhode Island rotated between Providence, Newport, Bristol, East Greenwich, and Kingston between 1681 and 1854 when Newport and Providence became the only capitals. Providence became the sole capital in 1901.
Providence has a population of about 178,000 inhabitants, but in its metropolitan area live around 1,6 million people, approximately 600,000 more than in the state itself, because of its expansion into southern Massachusetts.
