Warren is located in the northeastern part of the state of Ohio and a city in Trumbull County. It is part of the Youngstown metropolitan complex and sits on the Mahoning River. The first settlers in the area were a stockholder for the Connecticut Land Company named Ephraim Quinby, however, the name of the area was taken after Moses Warren who is a surveyor. The town became the seat of Western Reserve and was then eventually made as a county seat in 1803. With the completion of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal then runs from Pittsburgh to Akron, it was then the time that Warren developed its own inland port. The city’s economic growth was due to the discovery of the coal that is abundant in the Mahoning Valley and, thus, the development of the local iron industry after.
