Overview

For both new residents and old-timers alike, Warren A to Z takes you on an informative tour of Warren Township including the land, places, people, issues, and events that have shaped “the greenest place in New Jersey.”

Almost from its beginning 275 years ago, Warren was a scattering of small villages that included only a post office or church, general store, a blacksmith shop, tavern, and a few houses. Like many other communities in fast-growing Somerset County, Warren Township has changed dramatically during the last half century. Gone are the shimmering fields of hay and corn, the sheep and cows grazing in the sun, and the weather-beaten barns. Author and historian Alan A. Siegel arranges his entries alphabetically in an easy-to-read format as he explains how the forested mountains and pastoral valley have given way to progress. In 1982, there were still 150 working farms in Warren, but now almost all are gone—victims of the very charm of the surroundings that have attracted so many newcomers.

Warren A to Z will transport you on a fabulous historical journey that highlights the churches and schools, noteworthy buildings, famous people, and political movements of this beautiful area nestled in the Watchung Mountains.
