“Re-Discovering Eden” is an art and historic architecture project of Waynesburg Prosperous & Beautiful celebrating 200 years of Waynesburg history. In 1796, the five trustees of the newly organized county of Greene purchased a tract of land named “Eden” for their new county seat of Waynesburg. They laid out a grid of streets and alleys, each 180 feet square. This original grid is intact today, as is much of the early architecture.
Local artist Kyle Hallam’s bright, playful vision of Waynesburg is awash in color with a variety of techniques applied to historic photos. The color invites us to consider the architectural details with a fresh eye, recognizing features regularly taken for Granted.
Walk our streets, look at our buildings and think about the past, present and future. Have fun identifying the vintage photos. Some buildings are quite changed; others not at all. Notice the details and marks of time. Much of the early architecture remains. Learn about the people and events that happened here. Then gaze into the future. What can we do to keep the special “sense of place” that is Waynesburg?
The tour is enhanced by Memory medallions that exist throughout the community. Memory medallions use a barcode reader with your smart phone to retrieve location information, video, audio, text and images. Be on the look– out for the bronze Waynesburg Prosperous & Beautiful medallion plaques.
