December 26, 1850
Warren (Bradley County), “the Pink Tomato Capital of the World,” was incorporated. Home to about 6,500 people, the southeast Arkansas town was built on donated land. It was most likely named for Hugh Bradley’s friend, Edward Allen Warren, an attorney, state legislator, and state senator, although family tradition says that it was named for Bradley’s slave, Warren Bradley. Seat of an important timber industry, Warren still has many antebellum homes and a number of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
