Pawtucket is home to a number of very beautiful late-nineteenth century churches. Pictured is the interior of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception, which boast an illuminated rose window, as well as many other fine stained glass windows. Located on Pine St., the church is visible from I-95 which cuts a swath through the city.
There is a small National Register Historic District up the hill from the downtown area. Most of the houses in Quality Hill were built in the 19th century. For all of you non-Americans, remember, the country is only a couple of hundred years old, so for us this is historic! Most of the houses are clapboarded Victorians built in the late 1800's. The library and the tourist center (corner of Main St. and Roosevelt Ave.) have little brochures on self-guided walking tours. Other events like the Candlelight Tour of Quality Hill can be found at the neighborhood association's website:
Quality Hill Neighborhood Association.
The public library is quite nice, and has a pleasant reading area in which you can just kick back and relax with a magazine or newspaper. There is computer and internet access upstairs.
