Fall River is a city that delivers on multiple levels. Bordered by Mount Hope Bay and home to numerous ponds, the area is particularly desirable to those that love the water. With immediate access to I-195, travel to Providence is direct and simple.
Fall River was once known as the country's leading textile manufacturing center. After the great fire of 1843 destroyed much of its town center, the city was reborn and is revered today for its authentic restaurants and thriving community of business leaders. The city's Office of Economic Development has been a fulcrum for courting successful businesses for more than thirty years. Fall River is also a cultural hotbed with an array of museums and venues, such as The Narrows Center for the Arts and Fall River Heritage State Park, host to artisan fairs and concerts. The city's historic charm is furthered by Battleship Cove, a nonprofit war memorial and museum which is home to the world's largest collection of World War II naval vessels. With stunning ocean vistas, sloping hillsides, and beautiful cityscapes featuring classic architecture, Fall River is an aesthetically pleasing environment for anyone who appreciates a sense of fellowship and character.
Some of the city's notable areas include: Downtown, Corky Row, Highlands, Lower Highlands, Upper Highlands, Flint Village or "The Flint", Bogle Hill, Globe Village, South End, Townsend Hill, Maplewood, and North End.
