Warren was founded in 1798 as an agricultural concern and, within two years, became the county seat of Trumbull County. By the early 20th century, the city was the “Silicon Valley” of the Midwest with the Packard brothers growing the community as a hub for technology and manufacturing. Warren’s population more than doubled between 1910 and 1920 as steel production boomed, placing Warren on a track to be dubbed an “All-American City” by the National Civic League in 1954. Recreational options in neighborhood parks, local hotels, and eateries were abundant. Over 180 postcards in this book will illuminate the journey Warren took from the 19th century to the later decades of the 20th century.
