Welcome to the official home page of the historic town of Warwick, Massachusetts! I hope this page will help visitors locate information about our town and its history and attractions, as well as serve our townspeople as a source of helpful information and an electronic Town Hall. And see our wonderful town Newsletter (April 2014 issue) or join the Warwick-L, for even more information about our town.
