Information About Rhode Island

Rhode Island is a US state located in the New England region and the northeastern part of the United States. Rhode Island is the smallest state by area and it is the 8th least populous of the 50 United States. The official name of Rhode Island is the longest of any other state in the Union, which is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Rhode Island became the first of Thirteen Colonies to renounce its allegiance to the British Crown on May 4, 1776.

Rhode Island’s official nickname is “The Ocean State” which is in reference to the large inlets and bays that make up about 14 percent of the total area of Rhode Island. Rhode Island covers about 1,214 square miles and about 1,045 square miles of that are land.

State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, derived from the merger of four Colonial settlements. The settlements of Portsmouth and Newport were located on what is usually called Aquidneck Island today, but at the time it was called Rhode Island in Colonial Times. Providence Plantation was the name of the colony that was founded by Roger Williams in the area that is now known as the city of Providence. It was adjoined by the settlement of Warwick.
