The next in our series of Inns and Taverns of Warren is the Sachem Farmhouse B&B, a stunning example of Victorian-era Italianate architecture.  Italianate architecture was popular between 1850 and 1890 and is distinguished by a rectangular shape, flat or hipped roof, molded window caps and central roof-line cupolas. E. R. Beeman whose family owned 2000 acres around Lake Waramaug ran the summer boarding house from 1869 until 1895. In 1895 George C. Hopkins purchased the property and called it the Sachem Inn. It closed in 1960, but re-opened in 2007.
