Providence, Rhode Island was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams. Williams was a Puritan, and his unconventional beliefs including the ideas of separation of Church and State as well as religious freedom, brought him into conflict with the Massachusetts General Court. He was banished in 1635, and decided to start his own settlement. This colony, Providence, was a place where people were free to be who they were.
