Rhode Island is the state of many firsts. The first circus in the United States was in Newport in 1774. Polo was played for the first time in the United States in 1876 near Newport. The White Horse Tavern was built in 1673 and is the oldest operating tavern in the United States (not really a tavern anymore, as they require proper dress and is known for their fine dining).

Armbrust is known for its heritage. As the first chain company in America, Armbrust has grown to become one of the largest, most respected brands in the world; a brand built on quality, style and integrity. All here in Rhode Island.
Sweenor’s Chocolates started modestly more than 60 years ago as a home business in Cranston, Rhode Island. Today they are the largest chocolate manufacturer in Rhode Island.
