HISTORY OF THE HOUSE AT 117 MARKET STREET AND ELLA TYBOUT
The City of Warren was plotted out in 1796 after the Revolutionary War and named after General Joseph Warren. The Tybout House is located in the Historic District of downtown Warren. Next to what is known as the “little pink house”(Tybout House) is the J. P. Jefferson house that was built in 1890. It is on the US National Records of Historical Places. J. P. Jefferson was a business man and a manufacturer in Warren and served as president of Struther’s Wells. Jefferson bought the “little house” next to his in 1909 for his cousin Ella Tybout. Being a single lady she worked for J. P. Jefferson as his secretary. Jefferson allowed Ella to live in it until her death in 1952. At that time the house was deeded over the YWCA (Jefferson-Defrees Center). The house served several purposes until it was purchased by Priscilla A. Breese, a retired teacher, in 2009. It was operated as the Tybout House of Handcrafts until 2013 at which time it was rented as a single family home. In 2021 she decided to reopen the house as Yarn, Candy, Tea & Gift Shop.
