Wayne County Historical Society

Founded 1970

The Wayne County Historical Society was founded in 1970 by a group of individuals who sought to preserve and record the history of the county and its people. The Society has met on a quarterly basis since its beginning and the meetings have generally had programs designed around a specific topic relating to the history, genealogy, folklore and archaeology of the county.

The Society began publication of a quarterly journal "The Wayne County Historian" in March of 1988. The "Historian" is mailed free to all members of the Society and to permanent repositories: The Library of Congress, the Tennessee State Library, the Wayne County Public Library and to each of the three high school libraries in the county. The Society also maintains an exchange program with several other societies and organizations throughout the United States. These exchange journals are deposited in the Wayne County Public Library as a permanent repository.
