Overview of Medina

Visiting downtown Medina's historic square is like taking a charming step back in time. However, living there is even more exciting because it is one of the fastest growing areas in northeastern Ohio. Medina is a tight-knit community with a population of less than 27,000, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. With its close proximity to many interstates and urban centers, Ohioans are drawn to Medina apartments for rent as an ideal place to live.

Living in Medina, OH

One need only glance at one of the can see in the many Victorian buildings throughout the downtown square that this city has a storied history. Founded in 1816 and incorporated in 1835, the city saw its rise because of its close proximity to the Erie Canal, a major public works project that connected the Midwest to the metropolitan areas of the Northeast states.

The city has a history of being a safe haven on the Underground Railroad during the days leading up to the Civil War. It is estimated that nearly 1,000 slaves passed through Medina on their way to freedom in the North. The city continued to grow in the 1900s due to its industrial prowess. Well into the 20th century, the city became known for carriage production and mill farming.

Once the railroad came into the area and the neighborhoods around the Great Lakes began to sprawl, Medina began a shift into the future. During World War II, the city was responsible for building warships and artillery. After the war, many veterans came into the area and built homes with aid from the GI Bill. In the 1990s, Medina experienced the bulk of its residential growth, transforming the area from an industrial park into a thriving and prosperous community.
