PREFACE.



In placing this work before the public we desire to express our purpose fully and clearly,
viz: to publish such portions of the section's history as will be most useful in tracing its growth
and development, and to so identify the manufacturers and merchants here located with its pres-
ent condition, that the outside world may form a proper estimate of its importance as a point of
manufacture and distribution. In detailing so fully the extent and operation of each establish-
ment here noted, our design is that they may serve as illustrations of all that is claimed for this
part of the State. That the industries operated here to-day, whether large or small, attest fully
the advantages held out by this favored section, none can gainsay, and that many of the most
prominent ones owe a fair measure of their success lo the excellent facilities afforded them of
all kinds, is beyond question.

Located as this portion of the state of Indiana is, about midway between the densely-
populated sections of the country, with prompt and rapid railway communication in all direc-
tions, it presents attractions for the investment of capital which equal, if they do not surpass,
those of any other community in the Union.

We do not believe that one single manufactory in our whole selection has been over-esti-
mated, nor have we relied upon hercsay or taken a cursory glance over the field; our work has
been carefully done and much lime and labor expended by our staff in securing details from
those in charge of all establishments noted, and should any branch of industry appear to receive
less prominence than deserved it must be remembered that our enterprise was from its very
nature co-operative, requiring^is it did public approval and support; and the fault cannot be
justly placed to our account. ^Ve are none the less convinced however, that taken as a whole,
no single work on this place, ever issued, has contained so much new and valuable information,
or so entirely supplied an existing want.

Many things combine to make this an attractive location, but as they will become apparent
from a glance over these pages, we omit mention of them here. We have been aided in our
undertaking by the many who kindly gave the information asked, and to whom we extend
pur thanks.

THE PUBLISHERS.

Wayne County.



The characteristic topographical fea-
ture of the county is that of an elevated
campaign, or table-land which gradually
slopes from the northern boundary of the
county to the south-west. The general
elevation of the north part may he stated
at 1,200 feet above mean ocean tide, and
that of the southern part of the county
at 900 feet. The county is well supplied
with streams of living water, and the
large area of level lands are covered with
a grand forest which includes every va-
riety of timber that grows in this latitude.

Wayne County was organized in 1810,
and was named in honor of General An-
thony "Wayne. Previous to this time
there were only three counties in the then
Territory of Indiana, viz : Knox, Clark
and Dearborn. "Wayne County was
formed from a portion of the latter
county. The early settlers of this county
were mostly from North Carolina and
Virginia, and belonged to the society of
Friends. They were mostly intelligent,
sober and industrious people. The first
county seat was called the town of Wayne
but subsequently Salisbury. The first
court was held there October 28th, 1811.
The county seat was removed to Centre-
ville in 1816, but court was not held there
