Roger Williams National Memorial

Size: 5 Acres

Overview: Roger Williams was a visionary theologian, and founder of Providence, Rhode Island. After he was banished from Massachusetts for his religious beliefs, he created the first place in modern history that instituted separation of church and state, and promoted religious freedom. The colony of Providence was a haven for religious dissenters from all across the country. Visitors can experience their story firsthand through wayside exhibits, a short film, and many exhibitions in the visitor center. Without Roger Williams and his like-minded friends, the American landscape would be radically different today. Come revel in their triumph.
