Summary

Significance: The Warren YMCA building at 310 Liberty Avenue, built 1912-1914, is a contributing element to the National Register eligible historic district in which it is located. It stands between a mid- to late-nineteenth century residential area to the north and a late-19th century commercial area to the south. The district represents the prosperous period of Warren's history when lumber and oil production dominated the local economy. The YMCA building is in harmony in scale and building materials with the surrounding structures. Moreover, the YMCA in Warren was founded in 1886 during the town's period of greatest expansion and prosperity. Since its beginning the YMCA has been an important social institution in the community.
