Discover Medina History
by: Curatescape • 1
Discover interesting people, places, and events in the history of Medina County. Take tours of Medina and its surrounding area to learn about the region's rich heritage. Each point on the interactive GPS-enabled map is an interpretive story that includes historical information about the site along with historic images from various regional archives and historical publications. Many sites also include short documentary videos or audio clips based on expert research or oral history interviews.
Discover Medina is a collaborative project with interpretive stories developed by students and teachers at Medina City Schools, in collaboration with the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County.
