Meander a 19th-Century Main Street
This historic village became famous for its fine sandstone deposits, an ideal building material that was shipped around the world. Today, Medina is experiencing a renaissance, including historic revitalization projects, a thriving business district with additional lodging, an attractive Marine Park at the wide turning Canal Basin as well as train excursions along the canal corridor from the Medina Railroad Museum. Eleven interpretive signs offer an informative walking trail describing the village’s rich history. Another unique highlight is the Canal Culvert-a tunnel allowing motorists to drive under the Erie Canal-two miles east of Medina and featured in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!”.
