Homes for Sale in Medina NY
Medina New York is a small little village between Middleport and Knowlesville in Orleans County New York. It’s home to just over 6500 residents, surprisingly making it the county’s most populated village. The small village developed after construction of the Erie Canal which bends as it passes through the village creating a basin that served as a stopover point for boats and ships traveling inland. This village became the center of businesses that serve the trade and passenger traffic on the canal and several mills were constructed in the early 20th century. The fertile lands around the village gave way to many major markets and exports to New York City. Medina is just an hour from Rochester and Buffalo.
