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 Memorial Day Parade sponsored by the Bates-Schnell Post No. 168. The parade concluded with a march to the brook (from the triangle in the town center) to drop flowers in the brook in memory of Navy Veterans who died in the war.

If you see a monument in a cemetery that resembles a cut-down tree, it indicates that the deceased died in the prime of their life.
Frank, great grandson of Rev. Peter Starr, was born in Crawfordsville, IA April 17, 1839 . He enlisted as a private in Co. G 101st Reg't. U.S. Vols. of the State of Ill Sept 2, 1862. He was mortally wounded on board the gunboat Switzerland at the siege of Vicksburg at age 24.

We are grateful to all who donated to our Give Local campaign to raise money for the preservation of our Old Burying Ground.
And we are thankful to Karl Munson for volunteering his time to share his knowledge of cemetery preservation and conservation with us.
A splendid teacher, we cannot wait to work with him in the future.

Nothing is permanent.
Not even the roads we drive on.
In 1948, Tanner Hill Rd used to end across from Curtiss Rd on Rte 45/Lake Rd. And thanks to the slope stabilization works going on today, we can see the bridge abutments across Sucker Brook where the road used to be. The bridge was washed out in the flood of 1955 and not replaced. There have been over 20 changes in the roads during the 1900s alone.
