County bicentennial events set
On March 12, 1813, state legislators signed into law a bill that would spin off this area from what was then Washington County to form Warren County, named for Revolutionary War General Joseph Warren.
To celebrate Warren County’s bicentennial, the Thurman town government is holding Old Home Days on Friday June 14 and Saturday June 15. The celebration features live music, an encampment of historical re-enactors, children’s activities, food and fireworks.
