The Hurricane of 1938

The 1938 Hurricane hit New England just south of Rhode Island allowing the counterclockwise storm surge to go right up Narragansett Bay. Sustained winds of 125mph with gusts up to 186mph with a 16 foot storm surge destroyed coastal Rhode Island and flooded Providence. 600 People died and 4,500 were injured in total everywhere it hit. Still one of the worst disasters in US history.

Flying Horses Carousel-The carousel is believed to have been built 1876 by the Charles W. Dare Company of New York. It was part of a traveling carnival until 1879 when the carnival was forced to abandon the carousel in Watch Hill. Unlike most carousels, there is no wooden platform to support the horses but rather, they are suspended from chains. As a result, the horses seem to "fly" as the ride increases speed, hence the carousel's name.

Rhode Island was the last state to adopt an official state flower. Although the violet was voted as the state flower by Rhode Island's school children in 1897, the flower was not officially adopted as the state flower until 1968. There are 400-500 species of violet (viola) distributed around the world, most in the temperate northern hemisphere.
