The Historical Society of the Town of Warwick will sponsor a Revolutionary War Winter Walk on Mon., Feb. 20 at 11 a.m. at Sanfordville Elementary School, located at 144 Sanfordville Rd. in Warwick.
The one-hour walk will focus on the historic events that took place on the grounds of the school, which is the former farm of the DeKay family and is known as an encampment site for George Washington’s Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Participants will visit a Revolutionary War cemetery on the school grounds and do a landscape interpretation to understand the strategic value of the site in the past.
There is no cost for the outing and post-walk refreshments are not included. This is a moderate walk and is appropriate for all ages. Attendees can park in the school parking lot and meet at the flagpole at the front of the property. After the walk, those who would like to they can meet up at Penning’s Farm Market, located at 161 Rte. 94 in Warwick, to talk about what they learned on the walk while enjoying a hot chocolate or other refreshing beverage.
