Originally known as Mooresville and later changed to Duplin Depot,
the Town of Warsaw was settled in 1825. Warsaw was incorporated in
1855 and is home today to 3,066 people. With a land area of 2.9 square
miles, Warsaw is located approximately 65 miles from Raleigh and 55
miles from Wilmington. Today, Warsaw is a thriving community with
its economy supported by industry, business and agriculture.
Located along Interstate 40, and just down the road from Interstate 95, Warsaw is ideally suited for both home and business. Also, two major roads, US 117 and NC 24 intersect in the center of town, making Raleigh, Wilmington, Fayetteville, and Jacksonville less than an hour away. Rail service is provided by CSX and the Duplin County Airport is just minutes away.
West Park-Duplin County Business and Industry Center is located in Warsaw and is the largest industrial park in Duplin County. There are 900 acres available for new or expanding businesses. The park is situated between Interstate 40 and US 117. CSX Railroad runs adjacent to the park to conveniently meet shipping needs. Also water, sewer and natural gas services are available.
Warsaw's Central Business District is characterized by its historic beauty. Retail establishments located in the downtown area are proudly placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Warsaw is fortunate that the construction of Interstate 40 has prompted the establishment of several nationally recognized food service and lodging establishments to serve the estimated 20,000 vehicles that pass along I-40 and Highway 24 each month. Warsaw is also home to the final "rest stop", exit 364, on Interstate 40.
