Medina County

After the discovery of the New World, the land that became Medina County was originally part of the French colony of Canada (New France), which was ceded in 1763 to Great Britain and renamed Province of Quebec. In the late 18th century the land became part of the Connecticut Western Reserve in the Northwest Territory, then was purchased by the Connecticut Land Company in 1795. Parts of Medina County and neighbouring Lorain became home to the The Black River Colony founded in 1852, a religious community centered on the pious lifestyle of the German Baptist Brethren.
