Coventry

-A A +A

Squeezed into the northeast corner of Coventry are two mill towns, Arkwright and Harris, links in the chain of Pawtuxet River mill towns beginning at Hope and Fiskville immediately across the Scituate border and extending downstream in West Warwick to Phenix, Lippitt, Clyde, and Riverpoint. Together these villages occupy what was once, at least, a beautiful stretch of the Pawtuxet, which is evident when one pokes along its shore behind the mills and mill houses.
