    Warren County was created on March 12, 1800, from parts of Allegheny and Lycoming Counties. It is named for General Joseph Warren (1741-1775), an American doctor and soldier, remembered for playing a leading role in American Patriot organizations in Boston. He was killed at the battle of Bunker Hill during the American Revolution, while serving as chief executive of the revolutionary Massachusetts government.

    The Warren County Courthouse was built in 1875 and added to the National Register of Historic Places just over a century later, in 1977, because of it's architectural and engineering significance. It is still an operating courthouse and the seat of government for Warren County.

Warren Warnings and Dangers

  • by zelos2 Written Apr 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beware! This town is dying out fast and there is NOTHING left but rich commissioners and a mayor with his head up his *ss. Our main bridge is closed that connects the hospital to the downtown! If you need to eat, go to Jamestown. Our gasoline costs A LOT more than anywhere else in PA because we have the refinery that has a lot of money to buy other company's pollution rights, and jack up the price in town--Can you say "Monopoly"?! The tow hotels are Holiday Inn (not too bad) and the Super 8, playfully called "The Bug Haven". If this town isn't repulsive enough for you yet, let me know and I'll make it more clear for you! Check out the website with this warning for another person's view.

    Daylilies blooming along the Allegheny River

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Jul 12, 2007

    Favorite thing: Warren owes its location to the Allegheny River, upon whose banks the town was built. The Allegheny has its beginnings in northwestern Pennsylvania, loops briefly northward into New York Stat, then flows southward to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In Pittsburgh the Allegheny merges with the Monongahela River to form the Ohio River, which flows into the Mississippi and hence to the Gulf of Mexico. The Allegheny River Valley provides the northeastern most drainage of the Mississippi.

    The 325-mile-long Allegheny takes its name from the Delaware Indian language. The word is usually translated as "fine river", although the meaning is not definitively known. Some Indian tribes considered the Allegheny and the Ohio to be the same river.

    The Allegheny River is particularly pretty here in Warren, surrounded by the hills of the upper Allegheny plateau. This photo was taken near downtown Warren in early July, when wild daylilies were in full bloom along the riverbank.
