Ward 14: Elmhurst and Wanskuck

Covering the neighborhoods of Elmhurst & Wanskuck, Ward 14 is located on the northwestern quadrant of the city. Here you’ll find Providence College and the ever-popular LaSalle Bakery. The Wanskuck Historic District was once the location of a thriving mill village built along the West River. The mills have since closed but many of the buildings are still there, located, including The Wanskuck Public Library. This historic building is located on Veazie Street. The current building replaced the original library that was built by the Wanskuck Mill Company for its workers. Though the mill is closed, the library is still a going concern. In 1983, the historic district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
