Tour the Mysterious Pocomoke Forest Mansion
Furnace Town
Reservations are now being accepted for tours of The Warren Mansion near Furnace Town and Snow Hill, Maryland. Designed and constructed by Frank Algernon Warren in the early 20th century, the home reflects his artistic talents and his connections with nature. Warren, with his wife Mary and their nine children, moved from Pittsburg in 1905 to Snow Hill. He purchased 300 acres of forest land, and built a home patterned after a Spanish Villa – which is still referred to as “The Forest”. The 23-room house made of overlaid with concrete stucco has piqued the interest of locals for years. Many remember being taught by one or more of “the Warren sisters” in area schools.
