As a thank you to the community for supporting the newspaper for the past 90 years, The Waynedale News is hosting a pop-up museum consisting of a selection of over a hundred Waynedale Community (Fort Wayne, IN) historical photos, documents and artifacts!

This 700sqft museum will host just a small portion of the pictures, documents, and other non-digital artifacts that The Waynedale News has collected from the past 100+ years. Invoking a strong feeling of nostalgia, guests will get to see newspapers from almost 90 years ago, business cards over 50 old from people and businesses they may remember, and in addition to many other items, a large display of very early Elmhurst High School and Waynedale School documents, memorabilia and photos. A highlight of the exhibit is concert music from Elmhurst’s Don Goss as well as a slide show of photos that he had taken during his 54 years as an Art and Theater teacher.
