The village of Warwick, the largest municipality in Orange County, offers both the past and the future. The village center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Warwick Village Historic District. It features more than 200 buildings, including the village’s two oldest structures: the 1764 Shingle House and Baird’s Tavern, built in 1766, where Martha Washington once stayed. But Warwick is also focused on growth and development, and is home to such major employers as Tri-State Health System, Cablevision and Jones Chemical. Warwick also combines urban convenience—Manhattan is just 50 miles away and easily accessible by highway and public bus lines—with rural appeal. Its annual Applefest is the state’s largest apple festival, attracting 30,000 visitors who enjoy food and artisan vendors, games, rides and live music.
