Photo Archives


The Archives Photograph Collection, containing more than 10,000 prints, film negatives, slides and glass plates. It is an enormous visual resource for those interested in the history of the Town of Warren, especially its development from a nineteenth century farming community to the residential center.

The scope of the collections of the Library & Archives at the Society is wide and varied, and includes personal papers, genealogical material, photographs, maps and plot plans, and the records of educational and religious organizations, businesses and associations.
This material reflects the long history of Warren, Connecticut and its inhabitants-from farmers  to politicians and civic leaders, artists and writers, bankers and shopkeepers, local churches, clubs, libraries, schools and municipal organizations.

Selections from the physical collections will be digitized and presented here as time and resources allow
