What is the major city in area code 401?

Providence, city, capital of Rhode Island, U.S. It lies in Providence county at the head of Narragansett Bay on the Providence River. A seaport and an industrial and commercial centre, it is the focus of a metropolitan area that includes Pawtucket, East Providence, Central Falls, Cranston, Warwick, and Woonsocket. It was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, who had been banished from Massachusetts Bay colony for his unorthodox religious beliefs. Williams and five Dissenter companions, after canoeing along the Moshassuck River to what is now called College Hill, found a freshwater spring. From the Narragansett sachems Canonicus and Miantonomi he purchased the surrounding land, which he named for “God’s merciful providence.” The settlement’s growth, halted by King Philip’s War (1675–76), was given impetus in 1680, when Pardon Tillinghast built a wharf that became a base for the thriving triangular trade in molasses, slaves, and rum between Africa, the West Indies, and the American colonies.
