Our Neighbor Counties
It is documented that settlers settled in what is now known as Wayne County  as early as 1818    Though there have been 'unoffical' records that there were people in the area between 1812-1816. 

It became a county on March 26, 1819.  Wayne came from General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, a General in the Revolutionary War and an Indian fighter in the Old Northwest Territory.

The county seat location was picked because it was the 'center' of the settled areas.  Its surname, "Fairfield", was given because 'looking over the beautiful land, it was the fair fields that drew one's breath'.
