History

Warrenville was founded in 1833 when Julius Warren and his family moved west from New York seeking a fresh start from a failing gristmill and distillery. Daniel Warren, Julius' father, claimed land at what is now McDowell Woods, and Julius claimed land at what is now the Warrenville Grove Forest Preserve. The first major establishment, an inn/tavern, was built in 1838 by Julius Warren himself, as the family was skilled in timber and grain. The Inn still stands today, and was renovated in 2002.[1] 1833 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ...
