Wayne County, New York

The Wayne County Courthouse is located at 26 Church Street, Lyons NY 14489; phone: 315‑946‑5400.


At the time of early white settlement (ca. 1790s), the area of Wayne county was primarily used for hunting and fishing by Indians whose permanent settlements were along the shores of Cayuga Lake.

The county was erected in 1823 from lands then belonging to Ontario and Seneca Counties.
