The Foreign Country, Nextdoor

Thirty four miles Southwest of Boston there is a city just over the border that has the feeling that you are in another country. Pronounced, Woon-Soc-ate, has views you will never see in any other town in Southern Massachusetts. Crossing the border you immediately notice the difference in the buildings, signs and the local "Color".
Located on the Blackstone River In the center of town is the largest water fall, Woonsocket before the English and the French was home of three Native American tribes, Nipmunks,Wampanoags and the Narragansetts.
Woonsocket is a factory town that seems as if it never recovered from the Great Depression, Textile mills fill the town. Something to see, Woonsocket has more to look at then most towns you will ever visit.
Great for Heads Up Riding!

    Big hockey town. Mt. St. Charles beat us E.P. Townies every time.
