By the end of the Revolutionary War, the center of town had moved to several blocks south of this point. From 1820 to 1850 the Blackstone Canal and Providence and Worcester Railroad were built along the western edge of this plot, and Canal Street was erected along the channeled Moshassuck River. The ranks of labor for industrial growth were swelled by a succession of immigrants who filled the shops backstreet tenements of this quarter until the 20th century.
