History

The gore was originally chartered to be part of the town of Warren on October 20, 1789. The charter provided for two tracts of land; one of which became the town, the other became the gore. The two tracts were quite a few miles from each other, on opposite sides of the state. The tract that became the gore has been treated as separate from the town since its inception. The charter referred to the two tracts collectively as "a Township by the name of Warren". (State Papers of Vermont, Volume Two: Charters Granted by the State of Vermont, VT Secretary of State, 1922, pp. 207–9, also p. 362).

"Warren's Gore" or "Warren Gore"

Sources are inconsistent on whether the name of the gore is Warren's Gore or Warren Gore:

State Papers of Vermont, Volume One: Index to the Papers of the Surveyors-General (VT Secretary of State, 1918) lists the name as "Warren's Gore, one of two tracts in Vt. Grant to John Throop and associates, Oct. 27[sic], 1789, as Warren." (p. 155, note: it appears the date should actually be Oct. 20, and is given as such on the same page under the entry for the town of Warren).
