We just moved here in August of 2008 and the fish fry was the first event we attended after getting settled in. You are right, this little town is awesome and I love the old buildings even if a couple are in a bit of disrepair. Our house was built in 1894 and used to be a funeral home. In the Google earth satellite pictures the carriage barn is still standing but as of August 08 it was burned down and removed because of serious safety issues.

I'm glad to hear that you like your new home and community. Hopefully, you will always like it.

Waynetown IN Is one of the best places to raise children
In the 70s there were so many families that had children & it was a fun time everyone
Everyone new each other & looked out for each other
The summers were the best too
The community provided swimming lessons for all the kids at the pool & the splash parties for all older teenagers
There was a recreation hall too & Karate classes
Those were the best of times
The school was the best too
The Waynetown Fish Fry was the best it was right on the town square & Oh my the food was delicious
Enjoy your home & the peace that you find there

I was born in Waynetown and lived there until I was 5 and my grandparents lived there all their lives. It is a delightful little town and I have such fond memories. The coolest thing there when I was growing up (besides the fish fry) was the "big rock" right on the main drag. Boy, if you could make it to the top of that rock you were the coolest in all of Waynetown. Wonder why it now looks like such a little rock???? My grandparents home was right next door to the Servies Funeral Home. I wonder if that is where the other poster is living now?

My family moved from Waynetown in 69. My Grandparents lived there so I spent summers there and was there on all school breaks. I moved back to the area in 88 to work. It has always been home. Even though I have moved away again I will always remember the times growing up in Waynetown.
My grandparents had a farm out off 25 N. On the first road to the left past 74. We sure had some good times growing up out there. There were always things for my cousins and me to get into. As we got older we would ride bikes onto town. That was the big time then.
We went to the Baptist Church even though my Uncle was the preacher at the Christian Church. Always made it there for the fish fry. Spent many days at the pool. The pool was in the backyard of the house I lived in when I was very young. My Dad taught 'lifesaving and water safety' there in the 60s.( course it took to be a red cross certified lifeguard) so I learned to swim there.
I remember the Richardson Hardware which Frosty Richardson owned. The corner drugstore. The old restaurant. The grocery store. Lippy Harris' barber shop.....
Those were the days.
