Hicksite Friends Meetinghouse, 1150 North A Street. This old Quaker meetinghouse houses the Wayne County Historical Society. Well worth a visit.

Following the terrible gas explosion in Richmond in 1968, Main Street (Route 40) was closed and a pedestrian mall was built. Route 40 was realigned on North A Street for westbound traffic and on South A Street for eastbound traffic.

Unfortunately, the pedestrian mall idea proved to be awful from a business perspective.
