Ocean State Friday Fun Facts

We missed last week's Ocean State Friday Fun Facts, so here's a bonus "three-pack."  Enjoy the weekend!

  • Consistent with its small size, Rhode Island's State Motto, "Hope," is the shortest of any of the states.

  • Most Americans know that Rhode Island is the smallest state in the Union (OK, maybe the good folks in Delaware don't know that).  However, do you know just how small Rhode Island is in comparison to Alaska?  Believe it or not, you could fit 424 Rhode Islands within the state of Alaska.

  • Did you know that The Industrial Revolution started in Rhode Island?  It all began with the development and construction in 1790 of Samuel Slater's water-powered cotton mill in Pawtucket.
