241 South Court Street is a small building tucked away in the edge of the historic Medina Square's border. It is built in the Victorian style, with a bay window and a cast-iron front. Today, the front concrete step slumps in the center; a silent tribute to all of the owners and businesses it has housed. On this website, you can find a comprehensive exhibit and examination of this site throughout Medina, Ohio's history.

According to Medina City's Community and Design Committee, the building first housed Andrew J. Nelson's Candies & Nuts Shop. In 1934, Ernie Pelton took over the space and ran a grill of his own. This was replaced by the Medina Tap Room in 1945, followed by an antique store run by Paul and Jane Kolicki. After the antique store came Mud Mothers Pottery Shop, All Fired Up (which has since moved to another location on the square), a bakery called Creme de la Creme, and finally The Dress Bridal Boutique.
