Author and historian Marty Podskoch visited Warren yesterday afternoon to invite audience members to join the Connecticut 169 Club and visit points and people of interest all through the Nutmeg State. Audience members enhanced the conversation by sharing their own favorite places in Warren.
Thanks to M. LaHart & Co. on Bantam Road in Litchfield, the Warren Historical Society had beautiful bells to ring at this year’s Independence Day celebration. Reminiscent of Warren’s agricultural roots, the cowbells sported a laser-sharp image of our name and logo. We are so grateful!
This is both an item from our virtual collection and a continuation of our series on the Inns and Taverns of Warren.
In 1886 the Norris family of Warren added to their Lakeview Farm house to accept seasonal guests and diners. This establishment changed hands only one more time before it became The Inn on Lake Waramaug under the management of the Combs Family. From 1951 to 1986 the Inn operated with the intention that all should have the opportunity to enjoy Lake Waramaug.
Be sure to visit the Warren Historical Society at Holiday on the Hill!

Halloween In Warren!
Trick-or-treaters from Warren Childcare made the historical society a stop on their parade last Tuesday. They were making history.
The Warren Historical Society collects objects, photos, archival materials and images of objects, photos and historic homes and landmarks for our collection.
Many families want to keep their heirlooms close to home, but might be willing to share an image of the item.
If you have a photo, an historic house or an object with Warren significance, we have the expertise and equipment to photograph it.
The image becomes part of our virtual collection and the heirloom is still part of your family's legacy.
