About Wayne County

Wayne County, Ohio is located in the northeastern part of the state and is part of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area. It was established in 1808 and named after General Anthony Wayne, a Revolutionary War hero. The county seat is Wooster, which was founded in 1808 and is the largest city in the county. The first settlers in Wayne County were Quakers from Pennsylvania who arrived in 1808. They were followed by German immigrants in the early 19th century. The county was largely agricultural until the late 19th century, when the railroad arrived and industry began to develop. The county was home to several notable figures in American history, including President James A. Garfield, who was born in Orange Township in 1831.

During the Civil War, Wayne County was a major supplier of troops for the Union Army. The county was also home to several Civil War battles, including the Battle of Wooster and the Battle of Shiloh. In the 20th century, Wayne County experienced a period of rapid growth and development. The county's population increased from just over 40,000 in 1900 to over 120,000 in 2000. The county is now home to several major employers, including The J.M. Smucker Company, The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute, and the Wooster Brush Company.
