Wayne City Reviews

1 review
I grew up in this small town of less than 1,300 people. Although you have to drive 20 minutes from this tiny town to the nearest Walmart, it is a community that provides for itself and stands together no matter what. The area is full of interesting history and small details that you would come to expect from a small family-oriented town.
