Coventry RI Homes for Sale
An Awesome Place to Live!
Coventry was first settled by English colonists in the early 18th century, when the town was part of Warwick. Since the area was so far away from the center of Warwick, the section that became Coventry grew very slowly. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 62.3 sq mi (161 km2). 59.5 sq mi (154 km2) of it is land and 2.8 sq mi (7.3 km2) of it (4.49%) is water. The town is bordered by West Warwick to the east, Foster, Scituate, and Cranston to the north, West Greenwich and East Greenwich to the south, and Sterling, Connecticut to the west. It is the largest town in land area in Rhode Island. According to 2010 Census figures, Coventry has a population of 35,014.

Probably the best thing about our town is the people. We live in a town where the people actually care about each other. We shovel the snow for our elderly neighbors. We watch each other’s kids, and make meals if someone is sick. Our neighborhood has organized fundraisers to help out families in need. Every day I see posts on our Facebook page about how someone paid for their coffee in the drive-thru. Its really the people of Coventry that make our town awesome!
