Commemorative Photo Project for Warren County Historical Society


As Warren County, New York, approaches its 211th anniversary on March 12, 2024, the Warren County Historical Society is embarking on a collaborative initiative to document this historic day through a unique and inclusive photo project. Residents of Warren County are encouraged to participate by capturing a snapshot of their lives on this special day.

The project, organized by the Warren County Historical Society, invites individuals of all ages and backgrounds to share a glimpse of their daily activities on March 12, 2024. Whether it's a quiet moment at home, exploring local landmarks, or participating in community events, each photograph will contribute to a collective visual narrative of the day. The staff at the Warren County Historical Society will select the best photos and stories for the book. Selected photos and stories will also be placed on the Society’s Web site and Facebook Group.

These photographs will be compiled into a commemorative book, accompanied by historical information provided by the Warren County Historical Society, creating a time capsule that reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the community. The aim is to celebrate the unique stories that make up the history of Warren County and provide a lasting record for future generations.

"The 211th anniversary is a momentous occasion for Warren County, and we want to capture the essence of this day through the eyes of our community members," said Don Rittner, Executive Director at the Warren County Historical Society. "This project is not just about one day; it's about creating an annual tradition. Founder's Day will become an opportunity for residents to document their lives, creating a living history for the enjoyment of future generations."

Residents are invited to submit their photographs, along with any accompanying stories or captions, to by March 30, 2024. The Warren County Historical Society will celebrate Founder's Day annually by repeating this project, creating a growing archive that documents the changing times and shared experiences of Warren County residents.
