Warman, Minnesota

Warman is an unincorporated community in Kanabec County, Minnesota, United States. The community is located north of Mora on Minnesota State Highway 65.[1][2] In 1977, the Minnesota Department of Transportation estimated the population of Warman as 40 people.[3]

Warman, in sections 5 and 6 of Peace Township, was named in honor of S. M. Warman, a granite quarry owner who was killed by the fall of a derrick. According to Upham, Warman opened a granite quarry in 1907, and on July 18 of that year, he and his wife, Sarah J. Warman, platted a village as Warman Creek on the west side of what now is Minnesota State Highway 65, while N. C. Pike of Pike-Horning Granite Company, on July 23, 1907, platted a village on the east side of the road calling it East Mora. Eventually, these two small, competing communities merged to form Warman. A post office operated from 1907 until 1920.[4]
