=== Brief History <span style="line-height: 1.5em;" /><br> ===
=== Historical Data ===The charter for Warren was granted on November 9, 1780 by Vermont Legislative action. Warren's charter was not issued until October 20, 1789. The proprietors had encountered some difficulty in getting together the money for the granting fees, and Vermont did not give land away, hence the time lapse between grant and charter. Even so, nearly another decade passed before anyone settled there. <ref>About Warren, Vermont - http://www.virtualvermont.com/towns/warren.html#about</ref>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br>
