Fall River is an old textile mill town on a hill overlooking Mount Hope Bay, with one of the most complete collections of Victorian residential architecture in America. It is located about 46 miles south of Boston, 16 miles southeast of Providence, Rhode Island and 12 miles west of New Bedford. It has some superb local culture and venues and this map is intended to help you get to some of those cultural attractions. If you are an artist and would like more information on the arts scene in general, please visit ArtsUnitedFallRiver.org. And better still, if you are an artist and are looking for space to practice, visit FallRiverStorefrontArtist.org to learn more about a placement system that matches artists and currently vacant store front spaces throughout Fall River.
