Donated by Alvin Jenks in 1890, the park was built around Dexter's Ledge. In 1676 during King Philips' War, Indian scouts saw the approach of a colonist band from the height. Indians and colonists engaged in Pierce's Fight at a site along the Blackstone River where Pierce Park now stands. In 1904 Cogswell Tower was built atop the ledge due to a bequest by Caroline Cogswell.
