Ward 3: Mount Hope, Hope Village (Summit), Collyer Park, and Blackstone

Ward 3 is home to the Mount Hope, Hope Village (Summit), Collyer Park and Blackstone neighborhoods. This diverse section of the City is home to Miriam Hospital. Though officially referred to as Hope Village, this neighborhood is commonly known as Summit, because Summit St. runs directly through the center. The historic North Burial Ground, which is the final resting place of many notable figures in Rhode Island history, can also be found in Ward 3.
