Located eight miles downstream from Richmond, Warwick was an important 18th-century James River port and manufacturing center. During The Revolutionary War, Warwick's craftsmen turned out clothing and shoes, and its mills ground flour and meal for the Continental troops stationed at Chesterfield Courthouse. On April 30, 1781, British troops under Benedict Arnold burned the town, destroying ships, warehouses, mills, tannery storehouses, and ropewalks.
