History

Warman, located 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 author and geologist Warren Upham, Warman opened a granite quarry in 1907, and on July 18 of that year, he and his wife, Sarah J. Warman, platted a community named Warman Creek on the west side of what now is State Highway 65, while N. C. Pike of Pike–Horning Granite Company, on July 23, 1907, platted a community on the east side of the roadway calling it East Mora. Eventually, these two small, competing communities merged to form the unincorporated community of Warman. A post office operated from 1907 until 1920.
