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 would like to thank the Gray (Mulvehill) Family for sharing their family’s story with our Oral History Team. Among the things they shared with us was a card they would hang from the mailbox so the Good Humor Man would stop at the house to bring them ice cream. Wouldn’t that be a nice thing to have this summer!

This week in History: This Thursday, June 17th, 1775, Dr. Joseph Warren, died in the Battle of Bunker Hill just six days after his 34th birthday. Commissioned as a Major General, he chose not to exercise his rank and chose to fight as a private soldier. Our first First Selectman Major Eleazer Curtiss was the one to suggest naming our town after him.

Before there was Craig’s List or Facebook Market Place, advertisements were placed on bulletin boards at the general store. Here we have Dayton Payne’s (1869-1941). He was a farmer by trade, but on the 1917 Military Census he lists his other skill as a Watch Tinker.
