Located in the northeasternmost corner of Rhode Island, Cumberland is a sprawling town with a rich history offering rural charm, a suburban lifestyle, and tightly knit communities. Historic brick mills, wooden deck bridges, and antique farmhouses mingle with newer homes near the flowing streams and behind original stone walls. Homes for sale are varied, including Colonials, contemporaries, older construction, and new. Diamond Hill State Park is a treasure that offers beautiful views of thick, woodland landscapes and the Diamond Hill Reservoir. With 390 acres, the reservoir provides drinking water supply for nearby towns. Down the road from the park is the Diamond Hill Vineyard and Orchard, a picturesque spot for events.
Just north of downtown Providence for easy work commutes, the town's Blackstone River flows down the western border where mills and factories once thrived. Villages were established for the workers, providing housing, schools, churches, and stores. The areas of the town are still known by those village names: Valley Falls, Ashton, Cumberland Hill, Diamond Hill, Berkeley, Arnold Mills, Abbott Run, Cumberland Mills, Grants Mills, and Lonsdale.
