The History of Warren’s Station – A Family Restaurant in Fenwick Island Delaware
Warren’s Family Restaurant in Fenwick Island DE was established in 1960 by Warren D. Johnson of Nottingham, PA. Mr. Johnson was a renowned turkey farmer and thus turkey became the specialty of the house. In 1971, Mr. Johnson sold Warren’s to two of his former employees, Jeff and Paula Mumford.
In the years that followed, the local resort area experienced an explosion of growth and development. In order to accommodate the new volume of vacationers, Warren’s needed to expand. In 1983, Warren’s Family Restaurant became Warren’s Station. The original building was totally remodeled, enlarged and re-designed to be a replica of a United States Lifesaving Station. In 1995, upon graduation from college, the Mumford’s welcomed their son Scott into the business. The latest addition to the Mumford family is Scott’s wife Elise. Elise joined the staff in 2003 and brought 10 years of experience in the hospitality industry.
