The Warren County Historical Society will celebrate Warren’s Founder’s Day with a special exhibit of early Warren artifacts such as antique surveying equipment, early maps of Northwestern Pennsylvania, and surveyors’ and explorers’ journals. This year’s displays will also include a 1775 letter written by Warren’s namesake. On April 18, 1795, the Pennsylvania legislature passed an act to have lands surveyed and towns organized at the confluence of rivers in the state’s northwest. The spot where the Allegheny River meets Conewango Creek was to be named in honor of Major General Joseph Warren. In addition to the month-long exhibit, tickets for the Founders’ Day Raffle may be purchased through April 18 at the Historical Society—proceeds will benefit local preservation efforts.
