Established in 1892, its name is of uncertain origin, there being two possibilities usually cited: For Wayne
Robinson, whose father Willis E. Robinson served in the Utah State legislature or for American Revolutionary War
Gen. Anthony Wayne.
The Green River, passing through the canyons of Canyonlands National Park, forms the eastern boundary. The San
Rafael Desert occupies the center of the county. Thousand Lake Mountain and Boulder Mountain flank Rabbit Valley
on the western end of the county, where beautiful forests contrast with the deserts to the east. The small population
of the county is centered in Rabbit Valley.
