Warren County History

The county was established March 1, 1827 by the Indiana General Assembly. It was named for Dr. Joseph Warren, killed in 1775 at the Battle of Bunker Hill, in which he fought as a private because his commission as a general had not yet taken effect. The short-lived town of Warrenton was the original Warren County seat, chosen by commissioners in March 1828. The next year, however, an act was passed calling for it to be relocated, and in June 1829 it was moved to Williamsport.

Williamsport was, from 1879 to 1896, the home of James Frank Hanly, who was the Governor of Indiana from 1905 to 1909.


According to the US Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 367 square miles (949 km2); 365 square miles (945 km2) of it is land and 2 square miles (4 km2) of it (0.47%) is water.
