Have you seen this site? http://discovermedina.org/
Created by Shannon Conley's history classes at the Medina High School, this mobile app puts a lot of Medina's history right at your fingertips, literally. Just tap your smart phone or mobile device and away you go!
Every spring, Ms. Conley tasks her students to a historical research project and add it to the app. Focusing on the people, buildings, institutions and places of Medina County, the following are just a few of its offerings:
- Ralph Waite
- Dan's Dogs
- Letha House
- Spring Grove Cemetery
- St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church
- Austin Badger
- The Farmer's Exchange
- Rufus Ferris
- The Medina Square with links to the Medina Court House, Cool Beans Cafe, Ormandy's Trains
- Ella Canavan
|The Smucker Building on Public Squareby Owen Ferris|
You can search the site from a box at the top of the page, or just browse the links on the map of Medina. Zoom the map in or out to see more selections.
While assisting the students with their research can be challenging, I always look forward to seeing what they have produced.
Each topic includes a history, pictures and often, audio or video snippets too! The app is available at the iOS App Store or at Google Play
