A heartfelt thank you goes out to Teddy Stout for generously donating the fireplace plate from the Parkview Tourist House. Unearthed from beneath the house, Mr. Stout, the current owner, presented this marvelous piece to the Warren Heritage Society. Before its donation, he took the initiative to clean and restore it to its former glory.

The Parkview Tourist House, a cherished establishment from the mid-1930s to the early 1950s, provided a welcoming space for travelers to stay and enjoy meals and companionship. Under the ownership of the Biggs Family until 1970, it holds a special place in our local history. Thanks to Teddy Stout's thoughtful contribution, we can now preserve and share a piece of this historical gem with the community.
