Foster, a residential and agricultural town, was set off from the town of Scituate, and incorporated on August 24, 1781. Foster's historic man-made environment dates primarily from the mid-18TH to the mid-19TH Century; and within that time frame, many houses and farms date to the years between 1760 and 1820.

Foster is rich in historic resources - houses, farmsteads, stone walls, roads, and mill ruins - and in the natural beauty of its setting - brooks, waterfalls, woods, swamps, and the plant and animal life they shelter.

Foster is located in Providence County. Accommodations in Foster include Stone House Motor Inn.

Foster is part of the Providence-Fall River-Warwick metro area.
