The Wayne Historians Organization (WHO) has created a website dedicated to the historic sites of Wayne County. Town Historians and representatives of local historical societies have developed an online database of historic sites which includes: museums, historic markers, architectural treasures, churches, schools, cemeteries, industries, transportation, murals, organizations, and much more.
The goal of this project is to create a greater awareness of Wayne County’s unique cultural heritage.
Most of the sites of interest to historians and cultural heritage tourists are on private property and are not open to the public. These private sites are included because they can generally be seen from public streets. Local historians will be adding more information and photos. If you have additional information or photos, suggestions for inclusion, or find errors, contact the administrators of the WHO website.
The database can be searched by individual towns and topics. A few tours are also listed in the menu bar and others will be added in the future.
The Wayne Historians Organization (WHO) is a loosely organized collaboration of municipal historians and historical society representatives. The group meets bi-monthly to discuss topics of interest to the participants and works to share best practices and important information. The County Historian’s Office assists in coordinating WHO activities.
