Medina Steak and Seafood Company

Each and every building has many unique stories to go along with it. The Medina Steak and Seafood company built in 1858 witnessed a lot of occurrences since its early development. During the sectionalism the country nearly divided in half when brothers fought brothers during the Civil War. The shop included a key stop for the slaves to escape through the Underground Railroad through their journey up North. Since a lot of things rapidly changed in Medina over several years, you can probably imagine the The Medina Steak and Seafood company did as well. The building rapidly changed ownership because it went from a stagecoach shop originally built by Harrison Blake to a hotel, a brothel, a gambling hall and to a grocery store. If the walls of this building could talk they would tell hundreds of different stories.
