Medina (OH) (Images of America). Every small town should have a chronicler as able and meticulous as Gloria Brown. Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). In lesser hands "more than I wanted to know about Medina" would have been my response to anything beyond the title. The book contains a large number of historical pictures taken inside the long defunct amusement park, cottage area and picnic grounds, as well as the lake and beach. The recipient has numerous other books on the park by self-publishers, but says that this one contains more and better pictures.

Gloria Brown has been a college instructor and is a freelance writer with a particular interest in history. She is a member of the Historic Preservation Board of the City of Medina, the Community Design Committee, and the Medina City Archive Commission. Библиографические данные. Medina Images of America.

Medina was hewn out of the Ohio wilderness by Connecticut Yankees, many of them Revolutionary War veterans who brought with them a tradition of democracy and strong community spirit. In 1848, a fire devastated the public square. The citizens rallied, and it was quickly rebuilt.

In 1945, Pathfinder magazine selected the village of Medina as a “shining example of small town living” and, with the film company RKO Pathe, produced a 15-minute movie about Medina called Home Town USA. The film focused on the Victorian square and on the nearby tree-shaded streets lined with century homes. But the film did not tell the dramatic story behind the picturesque facade. Medina was hewn out of the Ohio wilderness by Connecticut Yankees, many of them Revolutionary War veterans who brought with them a tradition of democracy and strong community spirit. In 1848, a fire devastated the public square. The citizens rallied, and it was quickly rebuilt. In 1870, another fire wiped out most of the business district. Over the next decade, the square once again rose from the ashes, and the result was a village center filled with handsome Eastlake Victorian–style buildings. That public square sits at the heart of the community whose history this book puts on display.

I found this book by accident and actually live in Medina, OH (13 years now). In my time in the city, I've learned quite a bit of it's history. This book fills in all the details and extras of the city's founding and growth. The people covered in the book helps explain many of the city's landmarks and streets as well as why they are important to the history. The old photos from the city's past are awesome, especially since I know what those locations look like today (some preserved and some changed). The city has changed greatly in the 10+ years I've lived here, but to see and read of it's complete history is neat. The book is not long on text, but details stories well. My kids (school age) also have enjoyed looking through it.

Every small town should have a chronicler as able and meticulous as Gloria Brown. In lesser hands "more than I wanted to know about Medina" would have been my response to anything beyond the title. But coming across the book, with time to kill and absolutely no Medina connection, I was lost in this small, self-contained world from the first pages.

Should I visit the place, or does it live a better, brighter life in Ms. Brown's telling than in reality? Probably, so I think I'll look for more of her work instead, and leave Medina to my imagination.
