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. Paul's 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 village's 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. Paul's was listed on
the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and is the oldest
congregation in Medina County still in existence.
