Where is Glocester, Rhode Island, USA? 

Glocester is a town in Providence County, Rhode Island, United States. The villages of Chepachet and Harmony are in Glocester.

Glocester was named for Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester. Glocester was part of Providence until 1731 when it became an independent town. North Glocester was incorporated as the separate town of Burrillville in 1806. At the same time the residents of Gloucester voted to change the spelling of the town to Glocester to disassociate it with its English roots.Wikipedia
