Wayne has an extensive history in southeast Michigan. Just like many of the other communities nearby, settlers began arriving in Wayne in the 1820’s. At the time it was simply known as Derby’s Corner however, within a decade, residents officially changed the name of their community to Wayne in order to honor General Anthony Wayne who fought valiantly in many battles throughout the Midwest region and especially within Michigan. This general had such an impact that 14 cities and 15 counties in the country have his name associated with theirs. Wayne, Michigan, is located in Wayne County. For an extensive history on the city of Wayne, check out the Wayne Historical Museum in downtown Wayne which features over 100 exhibits.
The Wayne Library has his roots in a shoe store. Back in the 1920’s, a Wayne resident offered to loan his private collection of books to residents of the city. From there, the collection continued to grow and the library had to be moved to several locations. After the city took over operations, the library expanded to what it is now with over 100,000 being served.
Fifties Lube & Oil Change has been servicing the cars from Wayne since 2009 and the owner, who bought the location, has an extensive history in the automotive industry. Wayne is home to the Michigan Assembly Plant – Ford’s factory for building some of its vehicle. Having opened in 1957, the Michigan Assembly Plant has undergone several renovations to keep up with the new technology and has consistently employed autoworkers from the area for decades. Everything from the Ford Bronco to the Lincoln Navigator to the Ford Focus has roots in this assembly plant. Our goal is to ensure complete customer satisfaction and allow for each car that rolls off the assembly line an opportunity to safely and efficiently travel along the highways.
For Wayne residents looking to enjoy a night out there is the State Wayne Theater which has been a staple to the community since its opening in 1946. What started out as a single screen movie theater has multiple screens showing the latest movie releases. One of the highlights of the State Wayne Theater is its Rocky Horror Picture Show Experience featuring a live cast presenting the cult classic on the second and fourth Saturday of every month. The cast of characters are played by members of the Michigan Rocky Horror Preservation Society. A hand painted mural on the side of the building signifies four specific categories:
● People, Pride and Progress
● Industrial Growth
● Community Life
● A Road Runs Through It
