Warwick Through Time presents a unique history of Rhode Island's second largest city through a series of "then and now" photographs representing historic sites, buildings, and people from the communities of Appanaug, Buttonwoods, Cowesett, Kent, and Pawtuxet Village.
From its founding in 1642 to the present growth as a hub of transportation for the Northeast corridor, the city's rich history has been captured in drawings and photographs that have been preserved by the Warwick Historic Society. Utilizing their collection, we see in vivid detail, how much has changed, as well as how much has stayed the same, and been preserved for future generations.
Warwick Through Time is a collection of images and memories that is sure to be a keepsake for anyone who shares a love of history, and historic photographs.
