In the late 1600s, a group Quakers arrived to the New World, settling on land purchased by William Penn. This group settled in what is now Wayne, and the area remained a pastoral scene of rolling hills dotted with farms until the mid-1800s, when the railroad arrived. Soon, Victorian homes and shops began to dominate the landscape, and the area became a favorite rural getaway for those looking to escape the busy city of Pennsylvania.
Today, Downtown Wayne is a designated National Historic District with about 100 properties included. Located on the northwest side of Philadelphia, Wayne is close to Valley Forge National Historical Park, Norristown Farm Park, and Ridley Creek State Park.
