Many influential people have either been born or spent formative years in Warren. Charles Finney became the president of Oberlin College, the first school to admit women and people of color. Augustine Sackett became a member of the Inventors Hall of Fame for creating drywall. Katharine Curtiss, artist and engraver, was the youngest person ever to be admitted to Cooper Union Art Institute. They, and many others, were surely inspired or moved by our town’s rural beauty, rich history, and/or sense of community.
How has Warren inspired you? In 750-1000 words describe a Warren event, person or place (historical or current) which has had an important impact on your life thus far.
