Ward 12: Smith Hill, Valley, and Capital Center

Ward 12 includes the neighborhoods of Smith Hill, portions of Valley, and Capital Center. Located northwest of the city center, Smith HIll is bound by three of the city’s rivers: the Woonasquatucket, Moshassuck, and West rivers. This neighborhood was once the home of many industrial mills that relied on the rivers to provide power to their mill wheels. Roger WIlliams Medical Center is located off Chalkstone Ave in Valley. The Capital Center (located off Smith street, one this ward’s main roads) is where the Rhode Island State House, and many of the state’s administrative offices can be found. It’s also where you’ll find the Amtrak/MBTA train station, Providence Place Mall, and Providence River, where the Water Fire lighting ceremony begins and ends.
