Information for Residents
Living in Lorain County. Where Quality is a Lifestyle.

Lorain County boasts a high quality of life, is located in northern Ohio and covers 493 square miles - with its northern border lying on Lake Erie. The County has grown in recent years, as residents of nearby Cleveland in Cuyahoga County have moved to Lorain and surrounding counties to escape the busyness of the city. Lorain County’s population increased by five percent over ten years, reaching a peak of 296,307 residents in 2005.

The City of Elyria is the County seat and the second largest community, with 55,953 residents in 2000. The county averages 577 residents per square mile.

Grafton-Correctional-Farm.gifLorain County's scenery is overwhelmingly rural, with only seven percent of the county being considered urban. Most residents work in manufacturing, sales, or service positions - but farming still ranks eighth as a form of occupation.

Some County residents also earn their livings on Lake Erie, working in the city of Lorain’s harbor, sending products across the Great Lakes and around the world. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, steel was a major industry in Lorain County and brought many people to the Great Lakes region.

The history of Lorain County is rich, and many Noteworthy People are native to the area. For example, Ohio Governor Myron T. Herrick was born in Lorain County. Scientist Charles Martin Hall and artist Archibald M. Willard were also Lorain County residents at one time. For more information, please visit our website's Information Center or the website for the Lorain County Historical Society.
