Tours offered of Warren Mansion in the Pocomoke Forest

SNOW HILL — See the historic Warren Mansion nestled in the Pocomoke Forest just a few miles outside Snow Hill. Tours are available June 9, 10 and 11. On your tour, you’ll walk through the 25-room Spanish villa and learn how Frank Warren built the mansion, and admire the collection of his Impressionist-style artwork.

 

“The Warren Family has graciously opened the doors of their home for these tours”, says Patrick Rofe, executive director at Furnace Town. “The Warren family works with Furnace Town to coordinate the tours, and this is a unique opportunity that only comes along every two or three years. So, for anyone that’s curious or heard stories about the Warren mansion in the Pocomoke Forest, here’s your chance to learn how the family contributed to the rich cultural heritage of Worcester County.”

 

Frank Algernon Warren, early twentieth-century artist, eccentric and local celebrity spent more than 30 years in Worcester County crafting an amazing legacy of art, architecture and creativity. Mr. Warren built the 25-room Spanish Villa himself, and was considered an accomplished artist and is listed in Who’s Who in American Art throughout the 1920’s.

 

There is an opening reception on Friday, June 9 from 7pm-9pm at the mansion. The other tours are “The House that Frank Built” on Saturday, June 10 from 10:30am – Noon; “The Art of the Mansion” Saturday, June 10 from 2:30pm-4pm; and two tours of “Frank Algernon Warren: Bigger Than Life” on Sunday from 1pm-2:30pm and 3pm-4:30pm.

 

This is not a professional tour, but rather a private home whose owners open it only rarely to the public and a limited number of tickets are available. Reserve your space by calling Furnace Town Living Heritage Village at 410-632-2032. Tickets are $40 and $55. Photography is not permitted.
