The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (commonly known as Rhode Island) is geographically the smallest state in the United States, and the state with the longest official name. Rhode (pronounced "Road") Island is part of the New England region, and was one of the thirteen original American colonies that declared independence against British rule to begin the American Revolution.
I was looking for information concerning the old Chicken Roost cafe that was located just north of Springville back in the 40-50's and was run by my grandmother, Florence Smith Collings. My last trip out, I noticed it was now a hall for VFW or Eagles or ?? Not sure. I do remember working there as a child for my grandmother and all my aunts worked there as well as did my mother. We lived across the street for a few years before moving closer intown to Springville. Can you supply me with an address for the old Chicken Roost. Not sure exactly where it was but I do remember it was on the main road to Provo. THANKS --Submitted by Bob Dixon
