Search Medina Ohio

Medina county is located in northeastern Ohio just south-southeast of Clevelaand with the city of Medina serving as the county seat. The county population on July 1, 1999, was 147,277, an increase of 24,923 over the 1990 census.

The county was formed in February, 1812 and formally organized in the month of April, 1818. The fact that the land lay within the boundaries of the Western Reserve resulted in an influx of immigrants from Connecticut who were there claiming acreage (the "Fire Lands") given as recompence for the destruction of their homes. Germans also came to the county in great numbers.

As much of Ohio was at first agriculturally inclined, large quantities of corn and a variety of grains such as oats and wheat joined production from dairy cows and beef cattle, swine and sheep to spur an increase in the wealth of the county.
