Wayne County Museum
Museum Details
The Wayne County museum is housed in the Rollie Ley mansion, built in the 1890s. The home reflects a Victorianized Colonial style and features original woodwork, carvings and turn-of-the-century items of historical interest. The home contains four original marble coal-burning fireplaces, a built-in bookcase with curved glass doors, and several stained-glass and beveled-glass windows. The museum features a clock that was used in the first Wayne County Courthouse at LaPorte. Other items include a desk designed for the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 and memorabilia from several historical wars. The basement is stocked full of farm-related and primitive items from around the area.

The museum is open Sunday afternoons from 2:00 - 4:00 pm, May through September. School and private tours can also be scheduled by appointment. For more information, call (402) 375-1278 or (402) 375-1513.
