Wayne County Historical Society & Museum

The Wayne County Historical Society and Museum believes it's the little things that count in bringing history to life: the unique texture of hand-hewn logs, chiseled sandstone and handmade brick, the curve of a delicate staircase banister, a well-proportioned wood molding or the dashboard of a horse-drawn sleigh. It's the shine of the engraved brass patchbox on a muzzle-loading rifle, the glaze on a wheel-thrown pottery jug, the patina of furniture crafted by pioneer hands or wide floorboards worn to a rustic luster by the tread of untold numbers of feet over time.
