Warren County Bicentennial

Hudson River at Glens Falls Arch before 1903

Bicentennial Bells Will Ring in Warren County

At 2:00 pm on March 12, 2013 churches from all over Warren County will be ringing their church bells in remembrance of the incorporation of Warren County, New York on that date in 1813. The ringing of the bells is a significant undertaking since it is recorded in history that local churches rang the bells to alert the community of many events and emergencies that took place before mass communication became the norm.

The Bicentennial Committee thanks the churches that will take part in the event:
