October Events

Join us on Saturday, October 15 at Noon on the corner of Main and Washington Streets featuring free hot wieners courtesy of Rod's Grille and cold drinks courtesy George Hail Free Library. 

The newly restored "Washington Street" marker was placed on the corner of Washington Street and Main Street on June 24. The marker commemorates the site of Burr's Tavern (now demolished) located on the south corner of Main and Washington Street, originally Ferry Lane (leading to the ferry landing on Water Street) and later King Street until 1835. Burr's Tavern hosted George Washington, Jefferson, De Lafayette, De Castellux, Putnam and others. The original marker was installed in 1971. A joint project of WPS and MHA, the restoration was completed by O'Brien Company of Scituate, RI. 

We will be awarding historic house markers on the first Sunday of the Warren Walkabout on from Sunday, October 16 from 12-5 pm at the Historic Warren Armory, 11 Jefferson Street & also on the second Sunday of the Warren Walkabout on Sunday, October 23 from 12-5 pm at the Maxwell House, 59 Church Street.
