Welcome to Rhode Island
"Live Life Your Way" in the Ocean State.
Rhode Island is covered in low hills and forests. There are long, cold winters and short, warm summers. The soil is thin and rocky, which doesn't make for good farming. But wait, there's more. There are rich fishing grounds all along the coast which supply plenty of fish.
Rodger Williams wanted religious freedom so he moved south to Rhode Island and founded a colony.
Anne Hutchinson was kicked out of Massachusetts because of her religious beliefs. She came to Rhode Island with her children and met with Roger Williams to help set up a colony.
Rhode Island Flag
The thirteen stars represent the thirteen colonies, the word "HOPE" is the state motto, and the anchor stands for the ocean because Rhode Island is the ocean state.
