Welcome to Wayne
A ritzy town is full of creative impressions.
Spreading to three different counties, the vast range of Wayne was, and remains, a town built by design. Originally named Wayne Estates, after Revolutionary War general Anthony “Mad” Wayne, it was one of the nation’s first planned suburbs, putting it on the map as a residential and vacation spot. Created for efficiency and appeal, a lot of the original buildings still stand and operate today, including the Wayne Hotel, est. 1906.
This historical suburb is one of the most sought after spots to raise a family in the western suburbs.
