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.

Happy National Library Week!
The Warren Ct Historical Society would like to recognize the Warren Public Library, and how far they have come from their humble beginnings from a book shelf in the Center School House in 1914, to a room at the Parsonage. (5 Kent Road) to their present location in 1972. (With stints at the Old Town Hall & New Town Hall (8 & 7 Sackett Hill Rd respectively.)

It took a strong heart and strong arms to settle the wilderness, that became Warren Connecticut in the 1700s.
The latest issue of Connecticut Magazine shares a story about Taylor Swift’s ancestral ties to Windsor Connecticut, but we’d like to add that Swift’s direct paternal line can be traced straight to Warren, not to mention Ben & Casey Affleck’s ties to the first settler’s child born in Warren, Rhoda (Paine) Strong, their 6th great grandmother. @taylorswift @benaffleckreturn @caseyafflek Are you ready to find your roots?

Sometimes it’s not about the impact that one has on a town, but on one person.
Rosemary Breen, (1899-1962) left the town of Warren at age 25 when her husband, Lester Katan, got a job for the Railroad Postal Service.
Her time as a teacher made a big impact on at least one of her students during her tenure at the Brick School in the North District. Because of the impression she left on her student Josephine Vorisek, a part of the school house’s history has been preserved.
