Moosup Valley

Moosup Valley is a dispersed agricultural community that follows the length of Moosup Valley Road from a little west of Route 14 to just west of Cucumber Hill Road at the old Tyler Store. The original Library (foreground of photo ), built in 1900 to house a library given by local historian and store-keeper, Casey B. Tyler, was moved across the road in 1965 and joined to the schoolhouse to create the present Tyler Free Library. ( text from Foster, RI, RIHPC Report, P-F-1, 1982)
