Scituate is a rural town in the Northeast section of Rhode Island, about 20 minutes outside of Providence. Scituate is home to a beautiful and expansive reservoir which provides freshwater to more than 60% of the state. It’s also the headquarters of the Rhode Island State Police and Department of Public Safety. As with many towns in Rhode Island, Scituate has a rich colonial history and preserved buildings and homes dating back to the 18th century, especially in villages like Clayville and North Scituate. The country-style living and historic atmosphere is a draw to the area. Scituate is a healthy medium between suburban and rural — it’s not too far out of the way (like Foster), but provides more seclusion than Western Cranston or Johnston.
