Search Central Falls Rhode Island

The City of Central Falls was formerly a part of the Town of Lincoln, and was incorporated as a city February 21, 1895.

Central Falls, the smallest municipality in the state, is also one of the most densely populated cities in the country!

This tiny city just west of Pawtucket, on the Blackstone River has a history of industrial development. Central Falls was at one time called Chocolate Mill, after the chocolate factory established there in 1790.

Due to this inherent characteristic, Central Falls and Pawtucket are often alluded to as the "Twin Cities". Historically, it is best known as one of the areas where King Philip wreaked vengeance upon the white settlers, and a tablet at High and Aigan Streets marks the stop where Captain Michael Pierce, and a company of Plymouth soldiers were ambushed and almost annihilated by Indians, March 26, 1676.

Central Falls is located in Providence County, and is near Highway 95.
