Rhode Island on the Atlantic coast of New England is the smallest state in the Union. It got its name from one of the several islands in Narragansett Bay. The first European settlement was Providence, founded in 1638 by the Puritan clergyman Roger Williams (1603–1683) after his expulsion from Massachusetts. In 1663, a colony of Rhode Island was established. The peculiar conservative policy made the country the last of the original 13 colonies to ratify the constitution, and also the last to introduce universal suffrage after the Dorr Uprising of 1842.
Economically, Rhode Island has always been progressive. See Rhode Island abbreviation. It was at the forefront of the industrial revolution and its economy today is based on the production of machine tools, petrochemicals, selected light industry (clothing, jewelery) and a developed service sector. Fishing has retained its importance. Rhode Island preserves its historic sites; in the old port cities of Providence and Newport, entire neighborhoods have been preserved, including some of the oldest buildings in the United States.
