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.

Greetings everyone! Is there anyone who could help me name the people in this photograph?
It was in the file for the Volunteer Fire Department, but there is nothing written on the back.
Thank you so much! #NameThatYear #PuttingNamesToFaces #OldPhotos #1970s #WarrenCT #WarrenCTHistoricalSociety #WarrenVolunteerFireCompany

John Campbell Haywood was born in British East India in 1859. He became a writer, moved to America, and in 1884 married Homer S. Curtiss’s widow, becoming step father to Kitty and Leslie Curtiss. The family resettled in Warren and Haywood would send out little cards and stories illustrated by the girls. #HappyNewYear #WarrenCtHistoricalSociety #WarrenCt # CurtissFamily

Who else gets excited when they use their diary/day planner for the whole year? Edward L. Curtiss did. (1851-1914) Writing “Finished this one” on the top, this 1893 Standard Diary. It was part Almanac, with Tide Tables, Weights and Measures, an Address Book and instructions for emergency situations. (Lightning strikes a person: Dash cold water over person struck)
Measuring smaller than an index card so you could carry it all in your vest pocket
As an end of year bonus, the Warren Historical Society will be open 1 hour earlier. (Noon-4pm)

Looking for décor ideas? you could copy the Sackett family’s white birch gift tag from 1906.
Of course writing on birch bark goes beyond vintage, with Buddhist manuscripts being found dating back to the 1st century CE. #birchbark #gifttags #SackettFamily #WarrenCT #WarrenCTHIstoricalSociety #BeyondOldSchool
