WARREN — After a year of being closed, the Upton Association is ready to resume tours and programs at The Upton House, 380 Mahoning Ave.

Several events have been planned for the museum that honors the legacy of Harriet Taylor Upton, a political activist and the first woman vice chairman of the Republican National Committee. The Upton Gardens Beautification Days will begin at 9 a.m. May 11 and May 22. Volunteers are welcome.

Sunday open houses will return June 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. Open houses will also take place July 11 and Aug. 2.

A spring luncheon is set for June 26, with a program by Dr. Molly Sergi from Kent State University, Burton Campus. Invitations will be mailed for this event.

The annual garage sale will be July 16 to 17. Donations will be accepted beginning July 5.

The Upton Association funds and maintains the Women’s Park in Warren. Commemorative bricks to honor a special woman and help support to park are available.

The Upton House is once again available for rentals. 

During the pandemic, videographers Julia and Rob Thorndike recorded and produced two new films – "Harriet Taylor Upton’s Story" and "Harriet Taylor Upton’s House Tour."
