This is one of the best local history museums I have ever visited, run by the Wayne County Historical Society. Features several rooms of artifacts from Wayne County's history over the past century. (The WCHS also operates an Early History Museum in the nearby Fairfield Public Library). I was especially happy to see many items from the long-gone Strand Theatre and from various schools and businesses. Note, this museum is currently only open April through October on Saturdays.
