On Saturday, November 18 at 9:30 A.M. at the Warren Community Center, 7 Sackett Hill Rd. the Warren Land Trust will be holding its Annual Meeting. Town Historian and Warren Historical Society curator, Ellen Paul, will provide a brief program on the Willis Tanner Farmland Preserve – and its namesake, who served as Warren’s First Selectman for over 30 years. This 25 acre parcel is the newest addition to Warren’s preserved land. The program includes a walk around the field’s perimeter just off of Above All Road. All are invited.

Halloween In Warren!
Trick-or-treaters from Warren Childcare made the historical society a stop on their parade last Tuesday. They were making history.
The Warren Historical Society collects objects, photos, archival materials and images of objects, photos and historic homes and landmarks for our collection.
Many families want to keep their heirlooms close to home, but might be willing to share an image of the item.
If you have a photo, an historic house or an object with Warren significance, we have the expertise and equipment to photograph it.
The image becomes part of our virtual collection and the heirloom is still part of your family's legacy.
In some cases, the WHS doesn’t own the actual items, but has the rights to its image.
This portrait of Manly Peters is an example of our virtual collection.
Manly Peters was born in Woodville in 1799. His father, Eber, owned the mill on the Shepaug which became known as Peters Forge and by extension Petersville
Next weekend is the Warren Fall Festival. Please visit the Warren Historical Society's booth to see all our new offerings. We have a new publication, Warren Town Center, an Historical and Architectural Review, and don't forget to submit your best guess as to what our "What's it?" is this year.
Thank you to all who attended our 2017 Annual Meeting and special thanks to board member, Harriet Shapiro, for sharing her expertise on the art we hold in our collection.
