Lonsdale, Lincoln, RI - A great HOMETOWN in the ocean State

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with (FIRST Exclusive Buyer's Office Providence-RI) RI BO5192

I have been a resident in the village of Lonsdale, a historic district in town
of Lincoln, Providence County and Plantations, Rhode Island, United States, since 1972.  John and I wanted a neighborhood that had children and a great school system, since I was teaching and knew the best areas I did not want to buy a home in Pawtucket or East Providence at that time. It became the village of Lonsdale that was affordable and had a elementary school, Lonsdale Elementary (K-6) in walking distance without crossing any main roads. This section of Lonsdale abutts Cumberland, Central Falls and Pawtucket and is near routes 146, 122, 123 116 and 95.  We are in close proximity to Providence, about 12 miles.

Kathleen, I've actually driven through your area a number of times over the years and was always impressed with the country charm. Of course nothing in RI is every more than a few miles away so that doesn't hurt either. Nice post.

ED: Thanks for stopping by. Lonsdale and all of Lincoln does have its charming quality of a blend of historic homes and new developments. RI is a state one can travel north to south in only one hour. It makes it easy to service the entire state.
