Warren

Warren is often referred to as "the smallest town in the smallest county of the smallest state." However, do not be fooled by its size-Warren has a rich early history and vibrant culture, it has much to offer. Warren became a town in Bristol County, Rhode Island, in 1746 and was a prosperous maritime community. The history of the town can be seen in its architecture-some made by shipwrights and carpenters-with styles such as Federal, Gothic, Victorian, and Italianate. Some mills and textile buildings still exist in town today having been converted to loft apartments, small businesses and artist studios.

Despite its rich history, Warren continues to modernize with a vibrant art scene and variety of galleries, retail shops and restaurants-most of which are independently owned. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the art at IMAGO Gallery, try their hand at ceramics at Mudstone Studios, or take various art classes at the many local studios. Warren also has an array of restaurants ranging from the casual Blount Clam Shack, Taco Box and Rod's Grille to the more upscale Metacom Kitchen, Wharf Tavern or ByWater along with a variety of others. In addition, you can also enjoy local hard cider tastings at Sowams Cider Works and soon Warren will have its own Brewery at the recently renovated mixed use building, Tourister Mill at the north entrance to town.

This constantly evolving community offers a variety of real estate from Downtown Warren to Touisset Point and everything in between. Historic Warren offers homes for sale in a wide range of architectural styles and prices for any family size and budget, including cottages, colonial homes, contemporary ranch houses, condominiums, and multi-family housing.
