Warren is an unincorporated community recognized as a local urban district[1] in Manitoba. It is located in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands.

The post office opened in 1882 as Hanlan and changed to Warrenton in 1912. The community and Canadian National Railway point were named Warren, while the post office remained Warrenton.

Warrenton was rescinded in 1955 and Geographic Board of Canada correspondence in 1905 indicated that the post office and township were named Hanlan after Edward “Ned” Hanlan, “champion oarsman of the world” from 1880-1884.

Warren was named by the CNR in 1905, after A.E. Warren, Western Vice President of the CNR. Today, Warren is home to several organizations and tourist venues.
