“Warwick in History” – The Warwick Cemetery was founded by an association organized at a meeting held in the Wawayanda Hotel on November 27, 1866. The association purchased and laid out a tract of upland in the center of the valley, not far from the Village of Warwick. The selection was made with excellent judgement and discriminating taste.

Here are none but the soft and gentle lines, easy grades and smiling landscape that suggest life, love, beauty, and immortality; rather than harshness and death. the contour of the ground is favorable to the artificial arrangements desirable, and those in charge have availed themselves of this feature with success.

Today Warwick has one of the most beautiful and peaceful cemeteries in New York State.
