We stopped in to learn a little more about Warrensburg's history, and we were glad we did. The museum is small, but laid out beautifully, with lots of wonderful old memorabilia. The organization was easy to follow, and if you don't have time to take in the whole museum, its easy to pick and choose different topics to concentrate on. While talking to the volunteers, I mentioned that my parents used to own the Warren Inn (which burned down in 1972) and they knew all about it and where to point me to see the pictures of the hotel when it was called the Grand Army Hotel. I told them a story about Jackie Robinson stopping at the Inn when my parents owned it, and my mother getting out an old Jackie Robinson doll that my brother had in the 1950's. They took a picture of him with it and it was in the local newspaper. The volunteers were fascinated by this and asked if we could send them a picture of it, since I knew someone in the family still had the newspaper story from the paper. I doubt that we will ever return, as we are getting up in age now, but my brother is sending them the picture, so who knows, it may be in the museum if you go! It was a great intimate experience for us to be connected to the place where my parents had lived 54 years ago.

I regret we had no time to visit this museum but the murals on the outside are worth a stop. The American flag on the north side of the building is so well done and unusual that we stopped just to see it then say the colorful historical mural on the other side. I was told that the artist has done similar murals on buildings all around the US. I regret I don't know his name.

This local history museum is a must see. First, there is no entry fee! The museum is small, but well laid out. The two volunteers that we met there were helpful and could answer all your questions about Warrensburgh. No crowds as the museum is in a small town, but you will not be disappointed. Marilyn Monroe stopped here to present a "dream house" to a local resident and also as well as the first person to fly over the North Pole, Floyd Bennett. On May 9, 1926, famed American explorer Richard Byrd took off from the Norwegian Arctic island of Spitsbergen along with his pilot, Floyd Bennett, in an attempt to be the first to fly to the North Pole. Floyd was from Warrensburgh.
