Warren, OH: Downtown

Warren is a city in northeastern Ohio, north of Youngstown. It is the seat of Trumbull County. The population is around 40,000.

Warren began as the center of the Connecticut Western Reserve, being founded in 1798. The city began growing when the Pennsylvania & Ohio Canal was completed through the community in 1838. Later, the Cleveland & Mahoning Railroad serviced Warren beginning in 1856.

Industry in Warren took off in the late 1800s. The Packard Electric Company produced incandescent light bulbs. The Packard brothers also began the Packard Motor Car Company, which later moved to Detroit. The steel industry proved to be the biggest in Warren, due to the deposits of coal and iron ore in the surrounding area to

Today, Warren is a typical Rust Belt town. Industry left after World War II. Retail moved to the suburbs, adding to the decline in the Downtown area. In recent years, Warren has seen some vitality come back to the Downtown area.

I believe those tall buildings can form a decent mini-skyline.

Very nice pics.

From the time I was a kid, I would see "Halsey Taylor, Warren, Ohio" every time I would get a drink out of a water fountain. I guess they were headquartered in Warren.

I'll be doing some work at the Warren courthouse this week, it's incredible inside; the most well preserved courthouse inside that I've seen in OH.

This is my favorite building in the thread, and it seems unusual for a house to become a city hall!

Thanks, everyone!

These pictures were taken on a pleasant Friday evening. There were a few people around here and there, but not many. I try not to get people into my pictures anyway.

There were a handful of people in the courthouse square, playing some music out of speakers. There was a concert going on in a riverside park, as well, that people were walking to. You can see the temporary fences up for the concert in front of the Kinsmen House, and you can see the fencing in the distance in that picture of the river.

And yes, I don't recall seeing a house become a city hall anywhere else, either!

^lorain had a little house too that was city hall. nowhere near as historic or nice as warren’s though as you can see below. they added on crummy additions and finally tore it down in the early 1970s to build what is truly probably the ugliest city hall in ohio.
