The Wayne County Historical Society will soft open for the 2015 season with the Pat Hagans collection of Wayne County Memorabilia exhibit Sunday March 8, 2015 in the Kister building from 1:00PM to 4:30PM. The exhibit will be open for the balance of March on Friday mornings from 9:00AM to Noon and Friday afternoons from 1:00PM to 4:00PM and Saturdays from 1:00PM to 4:00PM. The mission of the Wayne County Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and interpret artifacts and experiences that reflect the cultural heritage of the county for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations. http://waynehistoricalohio.org/ The society can trace its beginnings to the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, at which Wooster businessman James Mullins found his attention riveted by a huge taxidermied collection of birds and mammals. When the World’s Fair closed, Mullins purchased the collection and rented a railroad boxcar to transport the collection back to Wooster. James Mullins served on the board of the Wooster Free Library Association, along with friend George Swartz, who had retired from Foss & Swartz (which became the Wooster Brush Co.). In 1904 the Wooster Free Library Association received a gift from Andrew Carnegie, the founder of U.S. Steel and literacy philanthropist, via the Carnegie Foundation to construct the Wayne County Public Library in 1905. It was decided that a Museum would be created on the second floor of the new library and George Swartz was named curator. The stuffed-animal collection procured by James Mullins, was the first artifact placed in the Wooster Museum and more items immediately began to flow in. That same year the museum obtained the Indian artifact collection of Dr. Joseph Todd, and in 1907 received the mineral collection of C.C. Parsons. Swartz continued as curator of the Wooster Museum until his death in 1924, at which time he was succeeded by Alvin Rich, who also ran the Rich & Co. Hardware store on the northeast corner of Public Square, and had worked alongside George Swartz to expand the museum collections during Swartz’s tenure. After Swartz’s death, Alvin Rich spent the next three decades building the museum’s collections. He wrote many scholarly articles and carefully documented the early history and development of the county. Rich used his personal time and resources to expand the collections of the museum and was not content to just collect artifacts but recorded the context and use of each item. View full record
