Wooster, a vibrant college town, is located in northeastern Ohio, with a population of 26,119 (2010 census), and is the county seat of Wayne County. The town was established in 1808, and named after David Wooster, a general in the American Revolutionary War. It is home to The College of Wooster, a private, liberal arts school of approximately 1,800 students, and is consistently ranked among the nation's top liberal arts colleges, according to U.S. News and World Report. Wooster is also dedicated to the "industry of education” and remains an agricultural center for Ohio. It has two subsidiaries of The Ohio State University: the Agricultural Technical Institute and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, which is a teaching and research facility dedicated to agricultural science. With Wayne County considered “The Gateway to Amish Country”, it is not unusual to see traditional Amish farmers come to Wooster by horse and buggy.
