Charles Whipple Greene Museum

Open Wednesdays from 2:00pm-4:00pm
or by appointment, 245-7686

The Museum was first established as the "antiquarian room" at the January 8, 1889 dedication of the building. It was set aside to house a collection of historic artifacts, antiques and curiosities.

The collection can be divided into domestic artifacts, military, maritime, and Warren items. Documents are also included: two journals of Luther Cole, a section of a whaling log of the ship Chariot, a George Washington signature and the papers of L. E. Simmon, a naval officer and Warren resident who was also the son-in-law of James Maxwell.

We are working to improve access to the museum collection. We would like to be open more hours and could use a few volunteers to help show people around. If you are interested, especially if you have experience in museums, local history or a related area, contact the library director at 245-7686 or via email at
