History at Lorain County Metro Parks

Lorain County Metro Parks strives to preserve the history of the parks of Lorain County as well as make it come alive to visitors. Through several historical sites and interactive programs, vistors can step back in time and learn of the history around them. This page gives information on some of the historical sites in the parks and links to local historical societies. The parks boast three historical sites that are available for tours for school groups and the public. A list of upcoming programs can be found on this page as well as annual events.
