Description

The view from Prospect Terrace looking west to the State House. This statue of Roger Williams was erected in the 1930s. Designed by Ralph Walker, the original memorial included steps leading up from Wheaton Street (below) but these plans were scaled down to this statue of Williams between two granite pylons forming a rectangular arch.
