General Warren Inne

Join us in our second year of this popular and tasty series of lecture series that benefits a great cause the — Paoli Battlefield Historical Park — a National Treasure! Funds and donations will help secure National Historic Landmark status, archeological surveys, recreating the 1777 view-scape, ceremonial and educational programs, reenactments and Park improvements. The Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund (PBPF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit and all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

The General Warren Inne played an important role in the Battle of Paoli and has long supported efforts for public education and to preserve our local heritage.

Based on feedback we received from you, we have revamped our check out process to better serve you. Starting with the September lecture, you will pay $49 for the dinner buffet, non-alcoholic beverages, as you have in the past, but now also included is the tax and gratuity so that all of your charges can be prepaid to allow for faster check out process. We kept the price the same with no check out at the end of the night. Alcoholic beverages are not included and will be additional.

Access to the room begins at 5:45 and buffet commences at 6 PM sharp. The Lecture begins promptly at 6:40 pm. Q & A begins at approximately 8:00.

Seating is limited, so watch our website’s Calendar for on-line pre-registration and payment information as the lectures approach. All registration will be done through the General Warren Inne to avoid any overbooking.

Thank you for your interest and support. We are looking forward to seeing you at our lectures and enjoy specially recreated 18th Century fare by a Zagat top-rated restaurant. Your support will help preserve our heritage for future generations.
