DISCOVER: Wayne County

Jul. 06, 2011 @ 12:15 PM

Nestled in the rolling hills of Wayne County, you'll find people with strong family ties, strong community ties, and a strong sense of tradition.

Bringing the best of "town and country" together, Wayne County is frequently described by its residents as being "close-knit." And while the landscape is certainly beautiful, and plenty of recreational opportunities are available, it's definitely the fabric of the people that makes it a great place to live, according to residents.

"I am blessed and inspired by the people here," said Kenova mayor Ric Griffith"... It's the people that really make us special."
