During the thirty-four year period from 1898 to 1932, more than
fifty thousand Italian immigrants arrived at the port of
Providence. The majority of them settled on Federal Hill, the
three-hundred-acre land mass that stands high above Rhode Island's
capital city. This remarkable photographic history of Federal Hill
features images of the community from the late 1800s to the
mid-1960s, chronicling the arrival of immigrants from many
countries over the years. Federal Hill is a rich community in many
ways. Its hardworking and tenacious settlers started out with a
deep and abiding faith in God. Their numerous accomplishments are
evidenced today in the many thriving family-owned businesses and
stunning architectural achievements so prevalent in the downtown
area. Many people from around the state enter Federal Hill through
the welcoming pine-cone arch for seasonal festivals or a night on
the town. The vitality and hospitality of this historic area are
truly cherished by many in the modern era.
