The Roger Williams National Memorial is a four and a half acre green space in downtown Providence. The site was designated as a national monument in 1965 in commemoration of the life of Roger Williams. The memorial's location was once Providence Plantations, the first European settlement in Rhode Island, founded by Roger Williams as a safe haven for religious choice and freedom. Today, the park has a visitor center with several exhibitions, as well as a small spring.
