The city's former National Guard armory is home to the Rhode Island Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum. Warwick was founded by Samuel Gorton in 1642 under the name "Moshassuck" (meaning "Great Field"). It was one of the first English settlements along the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Native Americans called this place "Aquetneck", meaning a large neck, or from an Indian word meaning either goose or duck, as there were many geese and ducks in this area at that time. This settlement became part of Warwick Township which included land from present-day Coventry into East Greenwich, West Greenwich and North Kingstown townships; it remained a township until February 28th 1743 when it became incorporated as a town with its own government separate from Providence Plantations (now known as South Kingstown).
