History

Wayne is a suburban village located on the Pennsylvania Railroad. Historically speaking, this place was established back when a railroad stop called ‘Cleaver’s Landing’ was built. A few years after, they changed its name to ‘Wayne Station’ in honor of General Anthony Wayne. 

The person who previously owned this estate was a banker named J.H. Askin. He was able to buy parcels of land here where he built a mansion named “Louella”, which was named after his two lovely daughters’ Louisa and Ella.

In 1880, two people named A.J Drexel, a banker and newspaper Editor G.W. Childs, were able to buy the surrounding areas of this estate along with the property owned by Askin. After that, they changed this village’s name to “Wayne Estate”. These two men were the ones who provided Wayne with access to clean water, light and drainage – the three basic essentials of a modern city. Thanks to that, more and more homes and hotels have been built here until it became what it is today.
