The history of Medina County is brimming with tales revealing the colorful and admirable character of its communities and people. For a while, locals observed living in two time zones simultaneously while also ignoring a federal law mandating Daylight Saving Time. The world-famous Giant of Seville, Captain Martin Van Buren Bates, had a brief but violent vigilante episode in Civil War–era Kentucky before finding peace and Christianity—and a home—in Ohio. The county’s most prominent political family, the Batchelders, had ties to a pig farm in Brunswick that drew national attention and statewide reform. Author Stephen D. Hambley, PhD, shares insightful and entertaining stories, many never heard before, from Medina County’s past.
