Due to Barrington having large clay deposits in the 17th century, bricks were typically made in Barrington through a canal that was dug from the pits of Narragansett Bay. This brick company began hiring southern Italians in 1893, after they put out an advertisement seeking 200 employees. Those who were hired emigrated to Rhode Island from Italy, settling in Barrington near Maple Avenue.
