Village Of Warwick

Village Of Warwick

The Village of Warwick was settled in 1764. In 1862, the opening of the Warwick Valley Railroad propelled the Village into a commercial, industrial, and financial center for the Town. On April 15, 1867, it was incorporated and a water system was constructed, DPW formed, and policing began.

The Village’s amenities and beauty were enhanced under the creative genius of Village president Clinton Wheeler Wisner. A pioneer in urban planning, he improved streets, added sidewalks, shade trees and flower boxes. The wealth of the community, spurred by the railroad and subsequent wealth of surrounding diary farmers, allowed the construction of many Victorian Homes.

In 1984, to preserve public and private structures, the Village established a State and Federally designated Historic district, comprising 208 buildings, nearly all of them built before the 20th century.
