Safe And Reliable Lorain Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

Located in Lorain County, this town is situated at the start of the Black River and is about a half hour away from the larger locale of Cleveland. It is also located on Lake Erie and is home to more than 64,000 residents. It is the 10th largest city in the state and is a fairly old city, established in the early 1800s. Lorain wasn’t even the city’s original name; it had the original moniker of Charleston.

One of the most well-known elements of the city was the presence of the Ford Motors Assembly Plant located here. This was a large segment of the town’s economy for many years, as was the large steel mill located here. At the outset, the city was a smaller village known more for its location on the Black River than its name. In fact, at one time, it was named “Black River Village.” Because of its proximity to the river, there are many water-based pastimes available here. This is a fairly middle-class area, with the median family income here right at $40,000. It is also a multi-cultural mecca, with more than 70 different types of cultures found here. Many of them came to this area because of the work available in the steel mills. In fact, this city is known as “Steel City” because of the presence of the mill.

There are a number of cultural events here, including the Lorain International Festival. There are also a number of historical buildings in the area, including the historic theatre building. The downtown area is a particular point of interest because the entire area was obliterated in the early 1920s by a tornado that ripped through the area. In fact, the town sees quite a bit of this type of weather on a regular basis, which can make living here a somewhat precarious proposition.
