Nestled in the heart of northwestern Pennsylvania in the Allegheny National Forest, Warren was founded in 1795 and incorporated as a borough in 1832. The new borough was a thriving lumbering center in its early days and continued to grow along with the burgeoning oil and railroad industries. Over the ensuing decades, Warren's prosperity and other attractions lured flocks of new residents who combined to create a proud community. Warren is a compilation of nearly two hundred photographs drawn from the extensive collections held at the Warren County Historical Society. This invaluable book begins with the early days of oil and lumbering in the nineteenth century, through the town's first centennial celebration in 1895, the days of the Warren Street Railway, and into the twentieth century and an infamous courtroom scandal of the 1950s. Warren serves as an invitation to reminisce about the institutions, influential Warrenites, companies, celebrations, and events that have shaped this historical community's rich and extensive past.
