The Manton neighborhood is located in the northwest quadrant of Providence. It is bordered by the towns of North Providence to the north, the town of Johnston to the west, and the neighborhoods of Mount Pleasant to the east, Olneyville to the southeast, and Hartford to the southwest. Manton was traditionally a farming area that became increasingly less rural. It was replaced by textile mills, which are along the Woonasquatucket River. When the textile mills closed in the 1970s, about one sixth of its residents moved out and housing prices fell.
