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.

We have yet to find how Frank W. Stone Jr and Miss Helen A. Trotter knew each other, but we do know Helen was 10 months old when she received this postcard. It appears she settled in nicely. In this 1929 mention in the Brooklyn Life Society paper she won a ribbon for horsemanship and form. Congratulations Helen Adair Trotter!�#WarrenCt #WarrenCtHistoricalSociety #Postcards#Touringthecountrysidepostcards #Brooklyn #QuincySt

Another card from Ristine, aka Fannie Perkins, this time to her aunt, Lucy Curtiss Strong, wishing her a happy birthday. This little missive is a clue to filling in the branches of her family tree, connecting her to Uncle Homer S. Curtiss, and Grandma Joanna Sturtevant.

Thank you to all who came out today to the annual Housatonic Heritage Hike with the Warren Land Trust and the Warren Historical Society. The land was a working farm from the beginning of Warren’s History, and began it’s return to forest land in 1928. We are happy to have the Warren Land Trust take over stewardship of this land and the monument built to honor Rev Charles G. Finney

Double your history, double your fun this weekend! Join the Warren Historical Society and the Warren Land Trust for our annual Heritage Hike. This year we’ll be exploring the new Cunningham Preserve on a family friendly hike. We’ll also see a hidden historical monument built 101 years ago by alumni of Oberlin College honoring Charles G. Finney who served as president of the integrated and co-educational institution from 1851-1866.
After the hike, you can make the quick trip over to Cornwall Village and enjoy the air-conditioning while viewing the exhibits #TouringthePostCardCountryside and #Understory

Not a post card, but a WWII registration card belonging to Harold Feller who was featured in an earlier post. Listing his place of residence as “3 mi. W of Kent” perfectly illustrates the vagaries of rural living.
