This national historic marker contains the graves of many of Warwick’s early settlers. It’s somewhere I like to go to be alone and one with history in the fresh air.
The Shingle House
Warwick’s most prized treasure, this house has celebrated 250 years standing. Its legacy is what makes Warwick distinct from other towns--showcasing how early settlers lived with such items as its original “beehive” oven.
"Located on Church Street, this small Federal-style house was built in 1810 by Azariah Ketchum who served in the Revolutionary War."
The Ketchum House
Located on Church Street, this small Federal-style house was built in 1810 by Azariah Ketchum who served in the Revolutionary War under Col. Hathorn, one of George Washington’s officers. (I love facts like these!)
One of our most legendary buildings dating to 1766, Francis Baird built this limestone tavern as an inn to house travelers that, along with a store, served a vital role in community life. Both George and Martha Washington are documented as having stayed here in Revolutionary times. I walk by it every day and revel at what interesting conversations must have passed within its walls.
