Known by few Brown grads as where their alma mater was founded as Rhode Island College in 1746, Warren continues to grow in population and industry. With suburban, safe Barrington to the north and historic postcard-perfect Bristol to the south, this East Bay small town is often overlooked like a middle child. As a town that has enjoyed a diverse and vibrant history, Warren maintains a more genuine sensibility amidst the wealth and publicity surrounding it.
