Celebrating 100 Years of Latino History in
Join us in “Celebrating 100 Years of Latino History in Lorain, Ohio” with this set of panels highlighting the history of Vine Avenue in South Lorain and how the area became home to many Hispanics and Latinos that moved to Ohio. Learn about Vine Avenue from people who remember growing up there and find inspiration in their stories for preserving the culture today.
How We Created This Exhibit
In 2021, the committee members for the Latino Lorain History Project came together and saw the need for a physical exhibit highlighting the history of the Latino community. Through collaboration, research, and collecting the stories of elders in the community, we have been able to illustrate the complex story of Vine Avenue.
We are revamping the online version of our "100 Years of Latinos in Lorain" exhibit. Stay tuned!
Where Is the Exhibit Now?
The "Celebrating 100 Years of Latinos in Lorain" exhibit traveled to different locations in Lorain County between 2022 and 2023. The physical exhibit is currently in storage at the Lorain Historical Society.
