Warren Heritage Center
The historic Kinsman House, which was built in 1832 by General Simon Perkins as a wedding gift for his daughter Olive Douglas Perkins and her husband, Frederick Kinsman, today serves as the home of the Warren Heritage Center.
The brick structure features an original full-width veranda with two-story columns. The interior contains white marble fireplaces, a black walnut staircase and woodwork and arched doorways. Imported Florentine glass in the side lights and transom of the front door adorn the house.
The Warren Heritage Center tells the story of the City of Warren and its role as the first economic and government center of the historic Connecticut Western Reserve. It collects, preserves and interprets artifacts from the City's past and maintains and conserves existing and future collections for exhibitions and educational programs.
The Kinsman House, which is handicap- accessible for the physically-impaired, is available to rent for meetings, dinners and special occasions. Arrangements can be made through the Warren Heritage Center.
