WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A walking tour on Wednesday took 40 participants along Waynesboro's Main Street and down Memory Lane as many of the walkers swapped stories about growing up in the community. "I went to business school upstairs," one man said while standing outside 26 E. Main St. Another echoed that his wife attended beauty school on the second floor in the 1960s. Several remembered when the structure housed a furniture store. That building, and scores of others on Main Street, have had many incarnations since the town's early days in the 1700s, providing for a wealth of historical information on three walking tours scheduled this week in conjunction with WaynesboroFest 2006.
