Warren Travel Guide
Warren Local History
Samuel Jones, founder of Warren, first saw this beautiful landscape during his service in the war of 1812. He secured, from the government, a piece of land, across which the old Fort Wayne trail crossed and as other settlers joined him, established a trading post in 1837. Samuel lived here for another 40 years and was the leading spirit in the community, with the first school run from his house. He served on the state legislature and helped advocate the laws essential to the government and regulation of the new state.
Jones was a pro-slavery Confederate supporter, who on hearing of the assassination of President Lincoln, hosted a bonfire to celebrate and invited all in the county to join him.
Warren has developed into a small town in the North of Indiana state, not too far from Fort Wayne.
