  • Tags: Naming of the County and the Town

The current downtown Wooster courthouse serves as a reminder of one of the conditions for Wooster’s position as county seat, which was to construct a courthouse.

General Anthony Wayne had an extensive military career and was involved in the Treaty of Greenville. He has had many towns, villages, bridges, and counties named after him.

General David Wooster was a military figure in the Revolutionary War, and although he does not share any direct ties with the initial surveyors, they selected him as the town’s namesake.
