Description

The Weybosset Hill area is bounded by Empire St. on the east, Broad and Washington Streets on the south and north, and Interstate 95 on the west. Redevelopment of this area stemmed from a 1959 recommendation of the City Plan Commission's master plan for Providence. Weybosset Hill cut off downtown from the West Side by blocking Westminster Street. Cathedral Square appears in the center of the photo.
