The man who settled colonial Rhode Island was named Roger Williams. He, a minister from Massachusetts, was banished from the colony because he did not believe that people should be prosecuted for their religious practices. In his view, the government shouldn't force people to worship a certain way. This lead Williams to establish Rhode Island, the first place in America where persons of all faiths could worship and practice as they wished.

Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island was strategically located in relation to the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies. Hence, maritime trade became an important industry to colonial Rhode Island. Shipbuilding was the first major industry in the area. Fishing was also important to the economy of the colony.
