  • In 1953 interested citizens formed the Wayne County Historical Society (WCHS) in order to preserve and display historical artifacts of local interest.  Its first president was local businessman Wasson Lawrence, a key fund raiser for the library building at Center and Second Streets.  That building was erected around 1956 and included a meeting room designated for historical society programs.  In the 1960's a bequest from Mim Hanna Brown funded a specially designed museum room connected to the south wall of the library.  Display cases were funded by local organizations and citizens and built by the L.J. Keith Company.  In addition to the museums, the WCHS hosts public programs throughout the year with speakers and other presentations.  Programs are open to the public and are for all ages.
  • The WCHA is a volunteer organization that maintains 501c3 status as a not-for-profit organization.  It is funded by membership dues, donations, and local grants.  Membership dues are $15 annually or $300 Lifetime (tax-deductible).
  • The Wayne County Historical Society and the Fairfield Public Library have a blended heritage of cooperation and mutual support.  However, the two institutions are separate entities with separate staff.

  • Early History Museum, 300 S.E. Second St.

    Located in a humidity-controlled room this original museum space connected to the meeting room of the Fairfield Public Library now houses the oldest and most fragile artifacts from the 1800's through the 1902's.  This includes exhibits on the Spanish-American Way, Civil War, churches, schools, businesses, Sexton Factory, tools, period clothing, and World War I.  This museum is the site of the WCHS Archives.  Closed for renovations until 2012, then open by appointment.
  • Hanna House Museum, 101 E. Center St.

    Through a cooperative lease agreement with the City of Fairfield, the WCHS took over the Fairfield Medical Clinic site and now offers fourteen rooms of contemporary history from the 1930's through to recent events.  Exhibits include military history, oil boom, country schools, civic Memorabilia, medical items, sports, Fairfield schools, businesses, and more.  This museum is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Saturday from April through October (except for occasional holiday closings) or by appointment.  Admission is free.  Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  The museum/clinic was originally the 1897 residence of the R.P. and Clara Hanna family.  It was remodeled in the 1950's.  This vintage building is not designed with handicapped accessible facilities.
