"a walk through historic wayne county"
County Historical Society invited county municipal historical
societies to participate in a creating a new exhibit in 2012
entitled “A Walk Through Historic Wayne County”. Greene-Dreher
Historical Society members developed "A Tour of Dreher Township"
featuring significant and historic locations in the township and
presenting them through words, photographs and artifacts from our
collections. Using an 8 foot by 4 foot board we have featured
Carlton Drake Park and Riparian Path, history of the German
Settlement in Newfoundland, Greene-Dreher-Sterling Fair, our hall
which is on the National Register of Historic Places, the French
Manor and the 1955 flood. Several other historical societies in
Wayne County also feature points of interest in their respective
municipalities. The exhibit can be viewed Wednesdays through
Saturdays from 10 AM to 4 PM through 2012 and Sundays, noon to 4 PM,
Memorial Day through Columbus Day.
