Fate, and an NSF research grant find me in RI this summer. As the maps are noteworthily devoid of Arkham, Mass. I suppose I shall have to settle for more concrete steampunkish locales or events...any suggestions?

P.S. Any Steampunks hiding at URI's GSO by chance?

I'm living in Boston right now...can't think of any place off the top of my head, but Waltham, MA was famous for its clock-making years and years ago...they were one of the first ones in the world to make machined clock parts, which were much more precise.

Have you visited Slater's Mill in Rhode Island or the Lowell National Historic Park? In Lowell, ride a canal boat or electric trolley and tour an entire floor of mechanical weaving machines. Earplugs are required.

The Springfield Armory is an oasis in a city and an arsenal of historic weaponry.

Beginning in June, Theater of Thought will kick off a show based on Call of Cthulhu with actors placed all over Providence and the audience has to find them in order to execute the final wishes of George Gamell Angell.  Find more information on the website.  Click the first image with the link to the Kickstarter page for a video.
