From
Warren PA
Originally a part of the Iroquois Nation this land was annexed
by treaty as a result of The Revolutionary War. President
George Washington assigned Irvine the task to settle this area
after he successfully ended a tax revolt downstream on the
Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. Warren was originally called
Conewango as noted on French maps dating back to 1740.
Prior to Irvine's purchase this had been part of the United
States' donation lands which were established to pay back
wages to members of the Continental Army for their service in
The Revolutionary War.
