Natural Resources

Our town is blessed with an amazing landscape! 

The scenic Blackstone and Branch Rivers converge in the north near the spectacular High Rocks Gorge.  Natives called the place Wunnashowatuckqut, “the crotch of the river.”  In the west, three dams along the Branch River form the mill ponds of the Slatersville Reservoir.  A dozen prominent hills dominate the terrain including Woonsocket Hill (586’), the state’s second highest elevation.
