Our Mission at EOTW

Our mission is to foster and inspire an environment in Old Town Warrenton that enhances economic vitality while preserving the historic character of the community; and to promote a rich and appealing cultural atmosphere to live, play and do business.

Our Vision for Warrenton

We envision Warrenton as a place with strong character and history. It has a lively Old Town where vitality fills the streets. People enjoy an authentic small-town experience that boasts a welcoming and safe environment for everyone. It is a vibrant and charming community filled with thriving businesses, exceptional public service and all the elements necessary to make Warrenton a place where people like to live, shop, work and play.

EOTW's Statement of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion


EOTW’s board is comprised of people from all walks of life representing a variety of ages, religions, ethnicities, genders, cultural, and political views, all working towards one common mission. We are committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness. EOTW believes diversity empowers us to have open conversations, coming together to explore new ideas and seek out new opportunities. We believe we are better able to serve our community with a diverse board and staff whose unique perspectives encourage growth and inspire equitable outcomes.


EOTW celebrates and embraces the collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that our merchants, vendors, and business owners bring to their crafts. These represent not only part of our overall culture, but our reputation as a diverse community as well. We continue to work towards an environment where all people from all walks of life feel welcome through inclusive programming, events, placemaking, and wayfinding. We work with our community partners to ensure equity in all things and strive to always be better.
