Find Out About Our History

Our beautiful venue was built in 1840 by Guy L. Warren, agent of the Macon & Western Railroad and one of Jonesboro's very first town commissioners. 

Used as a field hospital and headquarters by Confederate troops until the 52nd Illinois Infantry took possession of the house on September 2, 1864 for the same purpose. A number of signatures left by convalescing Union soldiers still appear on the walls of the downstairs parlor.
The Warren House historical marker

State Historical Marker

The historical marker standing on our property reads as follows:

"During the War Between the States, on this property to the north and west of this house was fought a major part of the Battle of Jonesboro, August 31st and September 1st, 1864. The battle was a struggle to capture the railroad to cut off supplies to Atlanta from the south. This house, used as headquarters and a hospital during the battle by the 52nd Illinois Regiment, was built by G.L. Warren in 1840. For many years, a bullet lodged in the wall and cannonballs in the yard were evidence of the proximity of heavy fighting.
