Peace Dale, Ri

Peace Dale, Ri

A non fiction book by

Sprawling mansions and granite buildings from the past are

still at the center of Peace Dale village life, but the town's

history is more than just a tale of a privileged few. The legacy

of the Irish and Italian immigrants who came to work in the

mills and stayed to build a way of life is as important in the

community today as the legacy left by the wealthy Hazard and

Rodman families. Discover these early residents of Peace Dale

in a remarkable collection of images, complemented by the text

of author and local historian Betty J. Cotter. From Peace Dale's

famous arched bridges to the mom-and-pop stores that ring Peace

Dale Flats, this unprecedented collection explores the memories

of yesteryear. The photographs date from the mid-nineteenth

century to the 1960s and were gathered from the collections of

the Pettaquamscutt Historical Society, the Peace Dale Library,

and local residents.
