Northwest RI

Bordering both Massachusetts to the north and Connecticut to the west, the Northwest Region includes some of the state’s most rural communities, as well as one of its most urban.

The region is also the location of the Scituate Reservoir which provides water to approximately 60 percent of the state’s population. Numerous villages dot the landscape with rich histories dating back to the 1730s and America’s Industrial Revolution. Today, the region is host to some of the state’s largest financial and insurance companies, and will soon have an active train line again from Woonsocket to Worcester.
