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.

It’s good to know that should I ever misplace something, that the good people in Warren would find it. With out even giving location clues, the two orbs I put out there were found in 48 hours! I’ve got two more glass orbs from the Merwinsville Hotel and will hold off hiding one of them until the weekend. Stay tuned!
To learn more about Warren during the time Gaylordsville was called Merrwinsville, call, email, comment or stop by!

Here is a way to get outside, explore Warren’s history, and participate in this year’s Orb Scavenger Hunt in association with the Merwinsville Hotel’s Restoration Project.
If you find an orb you can keep it, we only ask that you register it on their website (also free).
There are 2 of these clear orbs in the wild in Warren on properties owned by the town. (Outside). If no one finds them, I will give clues on Thursday.
