The land that covers Cranston today was originally territory of the Narragansett Native American tribe. In 1638, the land was sold to Roger Williams in the Pawtuxet Purchase; therefore, nicknaming the land “Pawtuxet” until its official name was agreed upon in 1754. The city Cranston is thought to be named after Rhode Island Governor Samuel Cranston or his grandson, Thomas Cranston, who served as speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives. Cranston officially became a city in March of 1910. Today, the largest industries in Cranston are health care, retail and manufacturing.
Today, the city of Cranston is known for several attractions and events. Perhaps one of the city’s most popular events is St. Mary’s Feast, which is a week-long festival that started back in 1905.
