An example of a triple-decker tenement in Central Falls. The triple-decker first appeared around 1890 and within a quarter century they predominated inner city neighborhoods in and around Providence, including nearby Central Falls. These deep, narrow, three-story structures accommodated rapid population growth experienced by Central Falls from a locally booming textile industry.
