However, Waynesville did grow up to become the Antiques Capital of the Midwest, snagging its own little piece of American heritage. Older than the state of Ohio, Waynesville has been home to its original settlers, the Quakers, and a long line of pioneers whose descendents still live in the area . . . even the ghosts have a hard time moving on! Waynesville successfully maintains its illusion of small-town America, to the delight of citizens and visitors alike.
