Warwick RI Homes for Sale
Warwick is the second-largest city in Rhode Island. It is a total of 49 1/2 square miles and 14 of these square miles are on water. It was founded in 1642 by Samuel Gordon. Warwick holds claim to the first violent act against British rule when in 1772 local tax revolting patriots boarded the British ship Gaspee and destroyed it. In history this was known as The Gaspee Affair, the first bloodshed of the American Revolutionary War. Each year the Gaspee Day parade in Warwick is one of the state’s most attended summer activities. Participants in full colonial dress march in an enormous parade through the streets of Pawtuxet and Gaspee neighborhoods.
