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 could not have asked for a more perfect day to partner with the Lake Waramaug Task Force to conclude this year’s program with the Warren Elementary School. We mixed Science and History with a bus tour around the lake, and Sean and Chelsea teaching about the flora and fauna of the lake and what they are doing to keep the ecosystem healthy. Special thanks also to Liz who drove the bus!

Being a proud plant parent is not a new concept. Back in 1907 a vacationer shows concern of the welfare of her plant. We will never know if Ellen, from Staten Island, had a Snake Plant or a Jade but houseplants will never go out of style.

The Warren Historical Society was so pleased to partner with the Warren Elementary School to teach the students about the history of Lake Waramaug and it’s inhabitants. We met a lot of bright young minds today!
Special Thanks to Craig Nelson for sharing his knowledge of Native Americans, and his personal history of growing up on the lake.

The Warren Historical Society is saddened to learn of the passing of Edna Nicholas. She and her husband ran the General Store from 1967 to 1972. Effusive and charming, she will be greatly missed. We are thankful to have an oral history recorded with Edna and Abe in 2014, and her memories will always live on. You can listen to their story by going to WarrenCtHistoricalSociety.org >Archives>Oral Histories.

Today would be a beautiful day to take a ride around the lake on “The Crescent”. You could charter the steamboat for a picnic on the lake by the hour for 25 cents!

Purchased by Graham Brush from Prime Wright in the spring of 1914. After making extensive repairs to the 30-foot-long boat, he ran tours and charters of the lake. It could carry about 20 people. Mr. Brush sold it in 1917 as he was in the Reserves and went into active duty.
