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.

This week in Warren History circa 1944.
“Members of the graduating class of Warren school, above, are, left to right in the front row:
Jeanne Mosher, Florence Weeks, Marion Ohmen, Virginia Sidgreaves, Jane Franklin, Jeanne Moody and Ann Schooner.
In the rear row are Richard Moody, Alan Howland, Nelson Mead, Warren Hoffman, and George Kibbe.“
Interestingly, "Mosher" is Jeanne's married name. She and William H. Mosher were married in December of 1943. In our Oral History with Jeanne, she tells us about getting married at 16 years old. You can listen to her story on our website.

We concluded our Children’s Program about entertainment throughout history in Warren with Suzi Tipa as our square dance caller, she lead the children through the basics, do-si-dos, and promenades, leading up to Cotton Eyed Joe, and finishing with a Virginia reel.
And of course our favorite rule;
No falling down in square dancing! (Thank you Mr. Favreau for tying shoelaces!)

We had a great time with the kids at Warren Elementary School this week!
The Historical Society’s theme this year is “That’s Entertainment!”.
Playing dress up and having photo shoots with their friends was a favorite pastime of Kitty and Leslie Curtiss and friends, only they had to wait for the film to be developed to find out if they blinked. (Photos circa 1906).
Warrenites, what do you like to do?
