Wayne County History
This two-session class on Wayne County, Ohio history, will be taught by Paul Locher of Wooster. The first session "Getting to Wayne County" will look at the people who settled Wayne County in the early 1800s-where they came from, why they came, and how they got here. The second class "Settlin' in Wayne County" will focus on how they cleared the land for farms, built their barn and cabins, and how both men and women went about their respective and strenuous farmstead tasks. Both classes will incorporate authentic pioneer tools and artifacts from Wayne County, drawn from Paul and Anne Locher's extensive collection.
