Warren was settled in 1737 as part of the Town of Kent. In 1750 a separate ecclesiastical society called the Society of East Greenwich was established and a church was founded in 1756. In 1786 Warren was incorporated as a separate town.
The Warren Historical Society was founded in 1968 with the mission to preserve the historic heritage of the people of Warren. Among its founding members were many of the descendants of the founding families of Warren.
Glimpses into Warren’s almost 225 years of history are captured in the museum collection. Photos, objects, diaries and genealogies tell the stories of Warren’s families, homes, business and role in American history.
