Charles Whipple Greene Museum
Open Wednesdays from 2:00pm-4:00pm
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.
The collection also includes Native American artifacts excavated from Burr's Hill Park, which overlooks the eastern shore of the Warren River.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
