Like many other states, Rhode Island’s history begins with the Native Americans. There were three main tribes that lived here, including the Narragnasett, which is now a federally recognized tribe in the state. The history of the state shows that the main areas in which they lived were in what is now Warwick, next to the great bay (now Exeter and South Kingstown). The Italian navigator, Giovanni Verrazzano had described the area as the size of a Greek Island of Rhodes, giving the state its name. Rhode Island became one of the first colonies to state its independence from England. This history of this state is very prominent no matter where you go, even on the beaches in the historic lighthouses. Plus, you’ll find historic Revolutionary War forts in the great port cities.
