Medina Heritage Center:

A nice museum located on the north side of the Medina Park and Campground. The Medina Heritage Center was started in 1986 by some very dedicated community history buffs, who were motivated into action by a school house that was donated from the St. Paul Township. A house mover was contracted to move the school house into Medina, after which it was renovated by donations and a hard working group of volunteers.

When the hard work was finished, the Medina Heritage Center was ready to accept items. Received were donations and some items are on loan. Another larger building has been more recently added, allowing even more items to be stored and displayed. Volunteers serve as hosts and hostesses. Donations accepted.
