自麻萨诸塞湾殖民地被驱逐出境后,威廉斯(Roger Williams)及一群宗教信徒在今罗德岛上创建了普洛维顿斯镇。威廉斯相信良心自由的重要,这也成为创立罗德岛时的重要原则,后来更成为美国的立国精神。罗德岛的正式名称为「罗德岛暨普洛维顿斯种植园州」,它是新英格兰地区的六州之一,也是最初的13州之一,于1790年添加联邦。罗德岛是美国境内面积最小的一州,它的州花是紫罗兰,而首府是普洛维顿斯(Providence)州名的真实来源不详。


Roger Williams and a group of religious followers founded the town of Providence in what is today known as Rhode Island after their banishment from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Williams believed in the importance of liberty of conscience, which became an important principle in the founding of Rhode Island and ultimately in the founding of the United States. Officially called "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations," Rhode Island is one of the six New England states and one of the original 13 states of the Union, entering in 1790. It is the smallest state in area in the country. Rhode Island's flower is the violet, and the capital is Providence. The exact origin of the state name is unknown.
