Debating Incorporation: Warrenville Celebrates 50 Years as a City

This is an exciting year for our community, as 2017 brings the 50th Anniversary of the City of Warrenville’s incorporation.  The debate around the incorporation was a hard fought one that occurred over several decades and multiple referendums. The first of seven votes held in 1927.  134 years after the founding of Warrenville by Colonel Julius Warren, residents voted for the formation of a governing body in May of 1967.
