Seniors Visit Warren, Ohio

imagesWarren, the county seat of Trumbull County, is a municipality of 47,000. Seniors will find Warren in northeastern Ohio, approximately 14 miles northwest of Youngstown and 15 miles west of the Pennsylvania state line.


Mayor William Franklin answers the question, “What makes the City of Warren an attractive place to do business? It all goes back to that famous mantra: Location, location, location!

Served by a first-rate network of railroads and highways, the city has long touted its unparalleled access to major metropolitan markets: we are located midway between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, while ground shipping can reach New York City and Chicago overnight.”

Seniors Enjoy Warren’s Museums and Parks


Senior visitors will find opportunities for enjoying a number of activities in the city of Warren: the Trumbull Art Gallery, Americana Amusement Park, Packard Park, John Stark Edwards House and Museum, Glendower Museum, Sutliff Museum and Mosquito Lake State Park.


Warren was first settled in in 1801. Ephraim Quinby was one of the early settlers of the area which was named after Moses Warren, the surveyor of the Connecticut Land Company.

Warren became one of the major trading and manufacturing centers in the late 19th century and remained so throughout the 20th century.

By 1888, four railroads connected this area with the rest of Ohio. The family of Neil Armstrong lived in Warren before settling in Wapakoneta. I’d want to be sure to visit the The Neil Armstrong First Flight Memorial.

 Senior Visitors Drawn To Downtown Warren


Downtown Warren has both historical and contemporary qualities that have drawn senior visitors for more than two centuries.The downtown’s beauty – which can be traced back to the original layout designed by early settler Ephriam Quinby – charms visitors and workers.

Some folks who enjoy downtown find it to be so attractive that they have decided to move into the upper floors of various older buildings.The centerpiece of downtown remains the Trumbull County Courthouse on the four acre Warren Courthouse Square.


Kent State University – Trumbull Regional Campus, Raphaels School of Beauty Culture  and Trumbull Business College are some of the local colleges and universities. Seniors, PlanetWare notes that Warren ranks among the 12 best places to visit in Ohio. -jeb
