About Wayne County

What makes Wayne County so spectacular?  Find out about the historical, recreational, and educational key points of this illustrious division.




The Stourbridge Line

Honesdale, Pennsylvania is known as "The Birthplace of the American Railroad." In keeping with this tradition, we participate in the Stourbridge Line Rail Excursions providing a uniquely fun and exciting view of the Pocono Mountains.


Driving Tour

This drive celebrates the remote, laid-back beauty of the Pocono Mountains and the shining waters that divide the ridges and reflect the calm. The highways have a back roads quietness, with a variety of unhurried stops: at family picnic areas, historic society museums, and old mill, pond and river fishing accesses, a fish hatchery, and farm stands. In fact, what most recommends this tour is its continuous, winning signature of simplicity and naturalness.
