Get To Know The Town Of Fall River

Located along the eastern shore of Mount Hope Bay at thenmouth of the Taunton River, the city became famous during the 19th century asnthe leading textile manufacturing center in the United States. While thentextile industry has long since moved on, its impact on the city's culture andnlandscape remains to this day. Fall River's official motto is "We'llnTry," dating back to the aftermath of the Great Fire of 1843. It is alsonnicknamed "the Scholarship City" because Dr. Irving Fradkin foundednDollars for Scholars here in 1958.n

nInterstate 195 is now the main point of entry for the city,nentering via the Braga Bridge from Somerset and leaving over "ThenNarrows," a small strip of land between the North and South Watuppa Pondsnthat carries Interstate 195, Route 6 and Old Bedford Road into Fall River fromnWestport as the roads make their way east towards New Bedford and Cape Cod. Thenhighway covers much of the old path parallel to the Bay Colony/New Bedford CapenCod Railroad as well the original path of the Quequechan River, and hasnresulted in a unique situation—it is one of the few highways in the countrynwith a city hall standing directly on top of it. In addition to Interstate 195,nFall River is also served by four other major routes, which include Route 6, Routen24, Route 79, Route 138, and Route 81. Additionally, Route 177 clips thenextreme southern part of the city for less than 0.25-mile between Westport andnTiverton. Route 138, Route 24, I-195, and US 6 are based upon old Indian routesnand trails. The Fall River State Pier is still in operation, bringing goodsninto the city via boat and by a freight train line which travels north from thenpier parallel to Route 79. The city, along with New Bedford, shares ownershipnof the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA), a bus line which coversnmuch of the south coast. Until approximately 1990, the Fall River MunicipalnAirport served as a general aviation airport for small planes and commuternflights to the Cape and Islands just north of the junction of Routes 79 and 24,nbut the airport has since closed, the land claimed for an industrial park.nCommercial air service is served through T.F. Green Airport 13 miles west innWarwick, Rhode Island and at Logan International Airport 45 miles north innBoston, Massachusetts.n
