Two weeks ago we looked at a section of the old Radnor Middle School mural, which showed the old Wayne public school and Bellevue Hotel (the tops of which are at the bottom of this photo).
Further up on the same mural, more historic buildings are shown. Can you identify the three buildings from Wayne's history in the middle of this picture?
Answer: On the left is Wayne Hall, the original town hall built in 1870 or shortly before, located about where the Bateman-Gallagher American Legion post stands today. In the upper right is the George W. Childs Memorial Library, located on Lancaster Avenue, which still stands as an office building. It is shown here in its original Tudor Revival appearance, built in 1897 from a design by architects Dull & Peterson. Below the library is the original one-room Wayne train station.
