Then & Now: Warren Green Building in Warrenton

The Old Jail Museum provided the image above of Warrenton's Warren Green Hotel as it appeared in the late 1920s.

The Fauquier Historical Society provides this description:

The Warren Green Hotel, originally built on the site of the Norris Tavern in 1819, was rebuilt following fire in 1876. Gen. Lafayette was given a banquet in 1825 with 6,000 of Fauquier's population cheering him. President James Monroe and a large company of distinguished men, were served an "elegant repast" here; Andrew Jackson stayed here; Henry Clay declared for the Presidency here; Gen. George McClellan said farewell to his troops in 1862, after being relieved of his command by President Lincoln; Theodore Roosevelt dined here; Wallis Warfield, the future Duchess of Windsor, spent a year here in 1927 waiting for her first divorce.

FauquierNow will make old photos the basis of a regular “Throwback Thursday” feature, comparing them with new images made in the same locations.
