The Online Review of Rhode Island History has been formed to promote the state's wonderful history. We intend to offer a variety of articles intended for a popular audience, but with an eye for accuracy over legend. We hope to make the state’s history interesting and fun, and eventually create an impressive archive of articles for both readers and researchers. We want to publish articles on narrative history, but also want to cover newly-published books on Rhode Island history, as well as Rhode Island history sites, artifacts, architecture, and historic preservation.
