Mount Hope

The Mount Hope neighborhood is located in the northeast quadrant of the city of Providence, and is roughly bordered by Olney Street to the south, Hope Street to the east, Rochambeau Avenue to the north, and the New York-New Hampshire railroad to the west. Mostly a residential neighborhood, Mount Hope includes both working class and middle class sections. In addition to its residential areas, the neighborhood contains the North Burial Ground, a view of the Moshassuck Valley from many streets, a busy commercial district along North Main Street, and an industrial and commercial area to the immediate west of North Main Street. This street expanded largely throughout the twentieth century, leading to a substantial amount of urban and suburban development. But these projects displaced many African American residents in the community and became a mixed-income, racially and ethnically diverse neighborhood. It remains similarly diverse today and is home to a variety of churches, schools and shopping centers.
