Incorporated: 1763

Origin: This territory was granted in 1763 to John Page and others, and named in honor of Admiral Sir Peter Warren. Admiral Warren commanded the fleet during the conflict with Canada, which ended in the capture of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, in 1745. This action united the colonies with a common goal, and provided them with fishing and fur trading rights. In 1770, the grant was renewed and an additional section of territory added to the grant when it was determined that the town line survey was incorrect. The town library bears the name of the first settler in Warren, Joseph Patch, who built a cabin there in 1767.
