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.

I wonder if the people who built the Brick School in 1784 had any idea what an icon it would become. Here is a Christmas card from 1944 featuring the 18’x22’ building.

Have you ever wondered how many people named Joseph were interred in the Old Burying Ground? Have you ever wondered how many people were buried in 1825? Or maybe you were looking for the exact location of Peter Starr’s grave. You can find all this and more at the Warren Historical Society’s award winning digital map of Warren’s Old Burying Ground.
We are pleased to announce the Award of Merit from the Connecticut League of History Organizations, and we thank all the volunteers that made it happen.

The last time our little brick school underwent a facelift was 48 years ago. Also happening in 1973, the Miami Dolphis defeated the Washington Redskins 14-7 in Super Bowl VII, Elvis gave his concert in Hawaii, And Skylab, the United States' 1st space station was launched. The Billboard top single was “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” by Tony Orlando and Dawn.
