The route in western Cranston is bounded by Hope Rd., Seven Mile Rd., Scituate Ave., and Pippin Orchard Rd., was established in 2004 to formally recognize the contributions of historic farms to our City’s growth, quality of life, and economic vibrancy.
The Loop wends its way through the Knight Farm conservation area and passes by several active farms. Recreational areas—the John L. Curran State Park and the western leg of the Cranston Bicycle Network—are also located on the Loop.
The Lippitt Hill Historic District is located at the northwest corner of the Loop and was home to some of Cranston’s earliest settlers. The Furnace Hill Brook Historic District sits just off the southeastern edge of the Loop and is the site of prehistoric Native American Indian settlements. The site also contains historic manufacturing buildings from the early days of the Industrial Revolution.
