Where is Hopkinton, Rhode Island, USA? 

Hopkinton, Washington, Rhode Island, USA
Hopkinton is a town in Washington County, Rhode Island, United States.

Hopkinton is named after Stephen Hopkins (a signer of the Declaration of Independence), who was governor of the colony of Rhode Island when the town was partitioned from Westerly and incorporated in 1757. Hopkinton once featured a number of industrial villages, such as Locustville, Moscow, Centerville, and Wood River Iron Works, each being named after the mill they surrounded. Today only Hope Valley, Rockville, Ashaway and Bradford are recognized with a post office. A section of the town has its own post office known as simply "Hopkinton". The town hall is located in the village of Hopkinton City, which was once a major stagecoach hub.

Ashaway is an unincorporated village and census-designated place (CDP) in the town of Hopkinton in Washington County, Rhode Island, United States. Along with Hope Valley, Ashaway is a principal village of Hopkinton, although it is the smaller of the two.
