Town Tours & Village Walks: Warwick Village c. 1717: An Early Iron Village

Thursday, June 27, 2019

Warwick Village has existed since settlers arrived in 1717 to work the local iron ore mines. The ore was hauled to nearby furnaces, where the iron was extracted and made into cannons and cannon balls for the Continental Army. 18th and 19th century homes line both sides of the narrow road that ambles through the village, which has seen few changes. The houses once served as more than residences. They were general stores, a post office, a hotel, a parsonage, a tavern, and a school house. In the center of the village is Saint Mary's Church, founded by Levi Bull in 1805. Many of the presenters will be in costume and the street will be closed to cars so visitors will be able to stroll freely. Near the intersection of Route 23 and Morningside Dr. Follow signs and parking attendants will be assisting.
