Historic Lynde House

Warren General Store adjacent to the Lynde House Museum is now open. We carry the works of local artists and artisans. Warren General Store is our museum gift shop and funds support the museum. So named for John Borlase Warren, who opened the first post office in his general store in Whitby Township and was Whitby’s first Postmaster. Brothers, John Borlase Warren and William Warren both married daughters of Jabez and Clarissa Lynde who built Lynde House c. 1812. John was married to Loiusa Lynde and William was married to Clarissa Lynde. Many of their stories are told c. 1829.
