Medina, Ohio

The City of Medina is the county seat of Medina County, Ohio. Located about 30 miles south of Cleveland, Medina has a current population of around 25,000. Medina has a diverse economy including manufacturing, healthcare, retail and tourism. Prominent companies with a presence in Medina include 3M Company, Owens Corning Fiberglas, and incubator manufacturers Chick Master. Medina's historic downtown square boasts a Victorian bandstand and town common surrounded by unique shops housed in 1870s buildings.

Medina was founded by 1818 by Elijah Boardman, a Connecticut man with substantial acreage in the Western Reserve. Early industry in Medina was largely agricultural. After the Civil War, the railroads linked the city to new markets and supply sources, and the city began to grow. In 1870, a fire devastated the central business district, and the town square was rebuilt, beginning with the Old Phoenix Bank. The A.I. Root Company was founded in 1868, producing beehives and beekeeping supplies. Mr. Root covered the story of the Wright Brothers first flight in his magazine "Gleanings in Bee Culture." The family-owned company, now Root Candles, is in its 5th generation, making handcrafted candles at its restored 1878 factory off the town square. The Henry Furnace and Foundry Company had its beginnings around that time as the Holloware Foundry. Early 20th century companies in Medina include the Permold Corporation, which made molds for the war effort during World War II, and the H.W. Madison Company, which made pickles and salad dressings. Contemporary industry in Medina has become more high-tech, as represented by polymer maker Optem, 3M Corporation's label-manufacturing plant, and Valspar's Plasti-Kote specialty paint division.

Medina has a diverse history of manufacturing and commercial construction during a period when asbestos-containing materials were widely used.
