Inscription.  On March 11, 1817, Rev. Roger Searle of Connecticut met with a group of settlers at the home of Zenas Hamilton in Medina Township and founded St. Paulís Episcopal Church. On April 10, 1817, the congregants cleared land near Weymouth and built a log church, which served as a school, place of worship for other denominations, and meeting house. The congregation eventually moved to Medina to serve the villageís growing population. Around 1883, noted Detroit architect Gordon W. Lloyd designed a new church in the Victorian Gothic style, thereafter described as “incomparably the finest Episcopal church in any country town at the time.” The first service was held on December 19, 1884. St. Paulís was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and is the oldest congregation in Medina County still in existence.
 
Erected 2017 by the congregation of St. Paulís Episcopal Church and The Ohio History Connection. (Marker Number 9-52.)
