Waynesboro is the seat of Wayne County, home to 2,500 people who appreciate all of the perks of small-town living: affordability, low crime, good schools, and an opportunity to be a part of a close-knit community.
Folks in Waynesboro are quick to invite you to just about anything: community events, high school football games, local happenings, and civic opportunities. That’s because Waynesboro is the kind of place where everyone plays an important part, and people just naturally want to work together. It’s common for visitors to feel like instant locals, and easy for transplants to plug in, get involved, and make a good life outside of the urban hustle and suburban sprawl.
Waynesboro might be small, but it’s a hive of activity. Residents play sports, support local causes, plan events, worship, and celebrate together. Just pop into Emeralds Restaurant any day during lunch time and you’ll find a multigenerational crowd catching up, sharing stories, and welcoming newcomers.
