自麻薩諸塞灣殖民地被驅逐出境後,威廉斯(Roger Williams)及一群宗教信徒在今羅德島上建立了普洛維頓斯鎮。威廉斯相信良心自由的重要,這也成為創立羅德島時的重要原則,後來更成為美國的立國精神。羅德島的正式名稱為「羅德島暨普洛維頓斯種植園州」,它是新英格蘭地區的六州之一,也是最初的13州之一,於1790年加入聯邦。羅德島是美國境內面積最小的一州,它的州花是紫羅蘭,而首府是普洛維頓斯(Providence)州名的真實來源不詳。


Roger Williams and a group of religious followers founded the town of Providence in what is today known as Rhode Island after their banishment from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Williams believed in the importance of liberty of conscience, which became an important principle in the founding of Rhode Island and ultimately in the founding of the United States. Officially called "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations," Rhode Island is one of the six New England states and one of the original 13 states of the Union, entering in 1790. It is the smallest state in area in the country. Rhode Island's flower is the violet, and the capital is Providence. The exact origin of the state name is unknown.
