Warren

While visiting Jamestown, we stayed in a beautiful little town named Warren. Warren, on the banks of the Allegheny River, is in Pennsylvania, almost on the New York border. Warren ranked second on the 2007 list of “Best Places to Live in Rural America.”
Stately office buildings... Sweet shops filled with treasures... Lovely old churches...
Founded in 1795, the City was named for General Joseph Warren, a distinguished patriot. Supported in the 19th and 20th centuries by the oil and lumber industries, wealthy barons left a legacy of over 600 extraordinary structures. These structures represent 25 different styles of architecture and may be viewed on a self-guided tour of the tree-lined Registered Historic District. At 28 blocks, the Historic District is one of the largest in the state. Founded in 1795, the City was named for General Joseph Warren, a distinguished patriot.

Let's take a little drive around Warren and visit some of the pretty homes....
Such a lovely town. If you are ever in the area, stop by and spend a little time. You won't be disappointed!

What a lovely little town! And those houses, just so gorgeous. Oh, yes, please do send me a picture of yourself!! I'll keep the challenge open so others can send me photos along the way and I will post them. I'll be looking forward to seeing it. If you can wear bunny ears, dear, I know I can count on you!
Be a sweetie,

Ms. Susie, you are still taking the most fabulous pics ever! And still traveling & are still one of the sweetest bloggers I know! I only wish I had another ME to get by to see all of you more often. It's just getting SO crazy to visit all of my wonderful friends & time gets away from me.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my bedroom. It truly is a haven & I'm enjoying getting some new business so I can decorate for others now.

xo,
Rhoda

Hey Susie Q! It was so nice of you to stop by!

I announced the winner Monday and I'm sorry you missed it. If you come back you should be able to to see.

I'll be doing another give-away soon so please do come back for the next one.

Hey Susie....

It was so nice that you came by my new blog! And now I've followed you home...and after strolling through the streets of your beautiful blog...well I feel just like I've been on vacation. What gorgeous pictures of some very quaint and fun places. It's so nice meeting new people and getting to share a tiny piece of their world!

When I first saw the title Warren, my mind flashed back to this boy in college who'd made me nuts. He had a massive crush on my roommate and would hang around our room, gazing at her like a puppy. Once he even told me, "Even her teeth are perfect!" Ugh.

This Warren is SO MUCH BETTER!
I sure can see why it was ranked so highly.
One day after Oprah discovers my book (I can dream) I want to live in an old house like one of those, one with some history!

Love the post Susie Q!

Loved the tour Susie Q. Love to look at homes. It's been a while since I have visited ...forgive me. The summer is just flying by and getting away from me. I feel like the little rabbits that are hopping all over my yard. I am hopping, hopping like crazy. :) Lynn

Gretchen said...

P.S. Fitting that someone at Rabbit Run would write about a warren. Just saying.

Dana said...

YOUR road trip beat mine all to pieces! I also love the old buildings and try to imagine the happenings that took place in them years ago when they were newer--what the people were like who lived or worked there--what they looked like, etc. They just sometimes take my breath away. Your trip to Jamestown sounded so much fun!!! I was pleased to find out all of the intereting info about L. Ball! Thanks for your terrific posts! Dana

When visiting new places one of my fav things to do is look at the area homes. Some lovely examples here!
