Lorain County was established in 1822, formed from portions of several adjacent counties, and became judicially independent in 1824. The original proposed name of the county was “Colerain” and was instead named Lorain, which has no intended connection to Alsace-Lorraine in France, as many have theorized. This history-rich region is home to Amherst, which has a stunning renowned collection of sandstone quarries. Residents of Lorain County enjoy water activities at Lake Erie, which is situated along the northern border of the county. Many visit Elyria for its many attractions, including restaurants, shops, and parks, and Cascade Park, the largest and most popular park in the city.
