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.

Building the U.S. Tex

West Warwick, and similar homes to early American textile mills, had a major part in the formation of the textile industry today. These fledgling mills popped up in an area that would eventually become Warwick in the early 19th century. The success of theses mills, as well as others formed around that time, gave the United States textile industry a serious kick-start. This snowballed into a burgeoning textile trade that rolled on for years and ultimately fed into the success of the billion-dollar industry. A piece of history is found here and lives on today.
