The City of Warwick celebrates it's history and culture by installing new signs in all the local villages. The Mayor, the Department of Culture & Tourism, and the Public works department have teamed up with local neighborhood associations in Warwick to present a living history guide.
The origin of Warwick with European settlers took place in the area very close to this sign site as history tells us. Now this area of Warwick, called Warwick Neck is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Rhode Island. It's own rich history and culture resonates throughout the streets and businesses located on "The Neck".
Rhode Island is the smallest state with 39 cities and towns. The second largest city is Warwick and it cosists of over 20 small villages which have played major roles historically in shape the city as we know it today. Over the years many neighborhoods have formed associations to improve the quality of life in the areas. Some of the activities these associations perform are annual parades, conservation projects and beautification projects, historic preservations, and general social outlets in the form of block parties and barbques. It's what makes New England and Rhode Island in particular, a fine place to live.
Also highlighted by the new signs is the once prolific trolly system that connected The City of Warwick in the early part of the 20th century. As a population of new immigrants and the bustling manufactuing economy, the city needed a way to transport it's citizens across the city. The trollies connected the villages and onward to Providence. These great thourough fares met their demise as the automobile became popular for the common folks in the 1930's.
These investments in the community bring light to the great achievements of our past and create a unique story for those residents, both new and old in the City of Warwick, Rhode Island.
It is my pleasure to help many residents of Rhode Island through their process of buying and selling real estate. Our little state has so much to offer and one could spend a lifetime here and just scratch the surface.
