Welcome to the new home of the Warwick Historical Society!
The John Waterman Arnold House c.1785
In May 1965 The Historical Society took official possession of the house after purchasing it from Mr. and Mrs. Frank Aldrich and Mrs. Harold Scott. In 1972 The Arnold House was placed on the National Register of Historic Homes. The house is filled with period artifacts, pictures, maps, and genealogy records. The House was completely restored in 2007 for all to enjoy. Stop in and have a look!
