Area History

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Trinity Square is a district in South Providence distinguished by its vibrant cultural diversity, as well as its significant historical landmarks. Previously, the Trinity Square neighborhood was considered the cultural corridor of the city of Providence. The area has faced some socio-economic and infrastructural challenges in recent decades (many of which stem from destructive urban renewal projects of the 1960s), though Trinity Square remains a center of education, social activism, and local business.
