Introduction to Warwick, New York
Warwick, which was once a major passenger railroad junction, was incorporated as a village in 1867. Regular passenger traffic ceased during the latter part of the 20th century, and was replaced by freights. During the American War for Independence, the British General Burgoyne and his troops camped on the outskirts of Warwick after they were defeated in the Battle of Saratoga. George Washington once stayed at Baird's Tavern in the village during the American Revolution. The city was named after the County of Warwickshire in England.
