Medina, Ohio: Celebrating 200 years 1818-2018
Founded in 1818, Medina is a community proud of its heritage. The Public Square and the buildings in the historic district surrounding the uptown park have been recognized as the physical, symbolic, commercial, governmental, cultural and social center of Medina since its founding nearly two centuries ago. From 1818 to today, Medina has seen decades of change, growth, challenges, loss, and prosperity, and it is fitting that we celebrate our community’s 200th year of existence.
