Davol Square - Description

Description

The historic Davol Rubber Company building and the former South Street Station of Narragansett Electric are located on the northeast corner of the square along Eddy Street. In 2004, the historic J.G. Goff's pub building (ca. 1820), located at the foot of the Point Street Bridge was demolished after its foundation was severely damaged during the construction of the Narragansett Bay Commission's combined sewer overflow project. The Manchester Street Power Plant is located at the southeast corner of the intersection, with its triple-stacks visible from many parts of the city.

As a consequence of efforts by the Rhode Island Economic Policy Council some high-tech firms are beginning to establish themselves in the area. The power plant building, donated by Narragansett Electric Co., will be the site of the Heritage Harbor Museum.

Brown University announced intentions to purchase a number of buildings in the area as part of its expansion.

Famous quotes containing the word description:

    The next Augustan age will dawn on the other side of the Atlantic. There will, perhaps, be a Thucydides at Boston, a Xenophon at New York, and, in time, a Virgil at Mexico, and a Newton at Peru. At last, some curious traveller from Lima will visit England and give a description of the ruins of St Paul’s, like the editions of Balbec and Palmyra.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this World: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else.
    John Locke (1632–1704)

    The great object in life is Sensation—to feel that we exist, even though in pain; it is this “craving void” which drives us to gaming, to battle, to travel, to intemperate but keenly felt pursuits of every description whose principal attraction is the agitation inseparable from their accomplishment.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
