The Museum’s Origins
The Sutliff Museum came into being as the result of a desire on the part of the late Miss Phebe T. Sutliff to provide a place where people of all ages could view, firsthand, examples of paraphernalia and objects of a time in history long past. She left the residue of her estate to the Warren Library Association, requesting that they establish and maintain a museum in honor of her parents, Phebe L. Marvin Sutliff (1822-1914) and Levi Sutliff (1805-1864).


The Warren Library Association had been incorporated in 1890 for the purpose of operating a library in the city of Warren, which it did until the early 1920s, when the association was no longer responsible for the library. The Warren Library Association continued on as an organization responsible for the guardianship of library trust funds and, at Miss Sutliff's death, assumed the responsibility for establishing and maintaining the Sutliff Museum.
