Pawtucket is located in Providence County, Rhode island and is the fourth largest city in
the state. Pawtucket is rich with history and was a key player in the American Industrial
Revolution because of its mills.
Built in 1793 by Samuel Slater, Slater Mill is the first successful cottonspinning factory
in America and still stands today. Since the early 1950’s, Slater Mill has been used as a
museum open to the public.
Pawtucket has a diverse culture with a variety of things to do around the city. Pawtucket
is home to the Pawtucket Red Sox—the Minor League team of the Boston Red
Sox—that play in the city’s McCoy Stadium. The longest professional baseball game in
history was played at the stadium in 1981 when Pawtucket beat the Rochester Red
Wings after 33 innings.
Pawtucket also has a vibrant art scene and the city prides itself in making it an “artist
friendly environment.” The city offers grants that are available to local artists and has a
yearly Arts Festival and Arts Marketplace that showcase their work. Residents and
visitors can also enjoy some music at The Met—Pawtucket’s midsized club that has a
variety of musicians and bands in genres like rock, punk, blues and folk.
Because of its rich history, Pawtucket offers many charming historical homes for sale.
More contemporary architectural styles are available such as Colonial, Cape, Gambrel
and Ranch. Real estate types in the city are diverse in terms of type and price offering
lofts, single and multifamily homes, apartments, condominiums and townhomes.
