Seekonk, Swansea & Somerset, MA

The earliest known inhabitants of Seekonk were Native American from the Wampanoag Tribe. This 18 square mile community is now mostly a residential community for her 13,000 residents. For nearly 200 years, the area now known as Seekonk was primarily a farming community. Boundary disputes were very common and for the next 200 years the area we now call Seekonk was primarily a farming community. Boundary disputes were common and the land that is now Rehoboth, East Providence, Pawtucket and Seekonk was claimed by both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. In 1812 the border disputes were settled by the courts and the present town of Seekonk was incorporated.

Two industrial villages developed to supplement the agricultural economy. What had been the industrial area of the town in the late 18th and early 19th century was lost when East Providence was incorporated in 1862 taking half of the town's territory, two-thirds of its valuation and more than two-thirds of its population. The town remained basically agricultural into the 20th century. Kent Manufacturing Company made tennis racquets and croquet sets on the upper reaches of the Tenmile River. The opening of the Providence and Taunton Street railway in 1891 forced Seekonk to become more of a residential suburb of Providence.

Very few farms still exist in Seekonk. Developers have turned the farms into housing divisions and Seekonk is used largely as a suburban home community for people who work in the Rhode Island and Boston areas. It is now well known for its retail area along Route 6, which includes a movie multiplex, many different chain stores and restaurants as well as the Seekonk Grand Prix with amusement rides and miniature golf. Seekonk is also home to the Seekonk Speedway, a fast track destination for the auto racing club (ARC). Seekonk Speedway has been owned and operated by the same family for 64 consecutive years. They offer Saturday night racing, the Seekonk street stocks and many special events throughout the year. Seekonk Speedway boasts they are 'the action track of the east.' Although there has been a great deal of building in Seekonk since the Wampanoags, you can still see many of the black Canadian Geese, which gave the town its name.
