Set in the county of Kent, West Warwick celebrated its 100th birthday in 2013. Originally part of greater Warwick, politics split the town in half. Democrats petitioned the separation to remove Republicans from control and to consolidate the power of the Democrats. The city life is solidly set here, but with open green fields and access to waterways. West Warwick offers a simple life with quick access to the hustle and bustle of city life due to the quick connection to larger cities like Providence.
