"Fall River, a city and port of entry of Bristol Co., Mass, is pleasantly situated on the E. bank of the Taunton River, at its mouth, and on Mount Hope Bay, which is the northeastern part of Narragansett Bay. By railroad it is 49 miles S. of Boston, 19 miles N.N.E. of Newport, and 18 miles S.E. of Providence, R.I. It is connected with these cities by the Old Colony Railroad and the Providence, Warren & Fall River Railroad, and with New Bedford (13 miles distant), by the Fall River & New Bedford Railroad. It is well built, having many buildings constructed of fine granite quarried in the vicinity.
