Coventry history:

In 2006, Coventry was the largest town in the state. Coventry was named for Coventry, Warwickshire, England. It began when Samuel Gorton and others bought a large area of land in 1642. This land would later become what is now Coventry, West Warwick and most of Warwick. In 1647, the men who made the initial purchase, along with other new settlers, created Warwick. The land was later divided into two major sections. The wilderness area of the sections would become the Town of Coventry. Due to the difficulty of traveling to Warwick for all business, a petition was made to separate from Warwick. The petition was granted in August of 1741 and a new boundary was made that still stands today. Many of the small communities and villages in Coventry were built around the mills. Some of these are Quidnick Village, Anthony Village, Arkwright Village, Harris Village, Washington Village, Coventry Center Village, Summit Village and Greene Village.
