Saint Georges Roman Catholic Church is also in close proximity to the Blackstone Boulevard Park in Blackstone. Blackstone is one of Providence’s residential neighborhoods. It is located in the northeastern part of the city. It is bounded by the Lloyd Avenue to the south and by the Hope Street to the west. Blackstone’s major thoroughfare is a street named after it, the Blackstone Boulevard.
Blackstone is a relatively new part of Providence. Because of its distance from the city proper, its development, which only started during the late 19th century, has been very slow. When a second public horse car line was put in place and completed, the Blackstone’s connection to the more advanced areas of Newport strengthened. Through the new lines of connection came growth and progress. But what became the catalyst for development in the area was not the car lines, but the completion of the beautifully landscapes Blackstone Boulevard in 1894.
During the 20th century, a number of buildings were put up. These include the aforementioned Central Baptist Church, the Saint Sebastian’s Roman Catholic Church and the Temple Emanuel. The rise of these buildings triggered the construction of more structures in Blackstone. Currently, Blackstone stands as one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Providence. Within it are two parks, the Blackstone Boulevard Park and the Lippit Memorial Park. The Blackstone Boulevard Park, consisting of over nineteen acres of parkland, is situated between the lanes of the Blackstone Boulevard. The Lippitt Memorial Park, on the other hand, is near the Pawtucket border at the intersection of Hope Street and Blackstone Boulevard.
Blackstone is also home to Rhode Island’s only private mental hospital, the Butler Hospital. Located off the main boulevard, the hospital, founded in 1844, offers substance abuse and psychiatric treatment programs that are among the best in America.
