Wayne was first settled in the 1600’s by a group of 40 Quakers from Radnorshire, Wales seeking religious freedom. The area was mostly farmland until the mid-1800’s when a stretch of Columbia Railroad between Philadelphia and Harrisburg was completed. Development began to surge around the railroad stop, which was eventually named Wayne Station after General Anthony Wayne. The center of Wayne is in Radnor Township, along the Main Line, though the Wayne post office covers a very large area.
