Medina is a village in the towns of Shelby and Ridgeway in Orleans County, New York, United States. The population was 6,065 at the 2010 census, making it the most populous municipality in the county. The village was named by its surveyor. It is part of the Rochester Metropolitan Statistical Area.It developed from a stopover on the Erie Canal, which bends as it passes through the village, creating a basin that served as a stopover point. Mills on Oak Orchard Creek provided water power, and the fertile lands around it gave it fruit to export via the canal. At the start of the 20th century, the village was a thriving industrial town.A branch campus of Genesee Community College is located in Medina.HistoryJoseph Ellicott, the agent of the Holland Land Company, once owned land that encompassed part of the village.Prosperity began around 1825 when the Erie Canal opened passing through Medina.The Village of Medina was incorporated in 1832, creating an entity contained within the two towns.Although the village board has begun merging functions, Medina has determined to remain an incorporated village.
