Abstract:
Waynesborough, founded in 1787 as the seat of Wayne County, was burned by General Sherman's soldiers in 1865. In the 1980s, the Old Waynesborough Commission decided to recreate the town. Original 18th- and 19th-century buildings were collected around Wayne County and relocated to the old town site. Today more than 15 buildings, including a general store, working blacksmith shop, and one-room school, comprise Waynesborough Historical Village.
