1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 1

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

Age 13

"Wayne was established in 1842, by the same act of the Virginia General Assembly that created Wayne County. The county was named for General ""Mad Anthony"" Wayne.[7] The town was initially known by the name ""Trout's Hill,"" after Abraham Trout, who donated the land upon which the county's courthouse was built. The Wayne Courthouse Post Office was established in 1842 also. The town was known simultaneously as Trout's Hill and Wayne Courthouse for many years. The town was incorporated in 1860 and 1882 as Fairview, but was still commonly known as Wayne Courthouse. The population in 1882 was 157. In 1890, the Norfolk & Western Railroad was constructed up Twelve Pole Creek. The railroad placed the name ""Wayne"" on its schedule and the name caught on. The name was officially changed to Wayne in 1911.[8] 1st Name Trout's Hill 2nd Name Wayne Courthouse 3rd Name Fairview 4th Name Wayne 1st Name 1842-ca 1860 2nd 1842–1892 3rd 1860–1892 4th 1892–present"
