History

Seekonk is known for its longstanding history. Early inhabitants included Native Americans from the Wampanoag Tribe. When colonists settled in Southeastern Massachusetts, Chief Massasoit served as the leader of the Wampanoags. He decided on a peace treaty with the colonists, and the Native Americans sold a large portion of modern-day Seekonk to them. Ultimately, colonists claimed the land, and the area became primarily a farming community.

Seekonk Speedway

Seekonk has become a go-to spot in the Providence area thanks to the Seekonk Speedway, which has been family-owned and operated since 1946. This makes it the oldest speedway in the United States. Catch a race on Friday and Saturday nights from April to September.
