Mile 4.8: Knightsville, Rhode Island
A combination of 4 1890s area USGS 15 minute quadrangles, featuring HP&F stations from Cranston to Arctic

My location for this station is based on my bike ride from River Point to Arlington (Mile 11 to Mile 2.6.) The bike tracking software put me at the correct milage in the area between Uxbridge St and the Oaklawn Ave overpass. Note that the overpass is marked on the 1894 map above as "Wayland," a name that the entry on Meshanticut Park on the Rhode Island State Parks website says was synonymous with the Knightsville station stop. So it may have been closer to the overpass than Uxbridge St. I am not sure.
