Press Release: WCHS Church Bus Tour of Northern Wayne

White's Valley United Methodist Church

The fall bus trip sponsored by the Wayne County Historical Society is once more a tour of country churches, this time in beautiful Northern Wayne County on October 10, the height of the "leaf-peeping" season. Eight historic churches in are on the itinerary and volunteers will be present at each to provide a history of the church and congregation and to point out unique architectural features. Lunch and dinner are both included in the price ($35 for WCHS members, $37 for non-members).

The bus will leave at 9 am sharp from the Honesdale Borough parking lot behind the Wayne County Historical Society at 810 Main St., Honesdale. Starting with the Bethany Presbyterian Church, the bus will next stop at the White's Valley, Orson and Lake Como United Methodist Churches, followed by lunch at the Shehawken United Methodist Church, where the visit will also include a concert on their new organ. After lunch come visits to the Sherman Bible Chapel, birthplace of the Fresh Air Fund; the Body of Christ (formerly Methodist) church in Starrucca and the Starrucca Baptist Church, where at the end of the tour the group will enjoy a chicken and biscuit dinner.
