You are also encouraged to stop by the Student Center of Lorain County Community College to view an informative Traveling Bicentennial Exhibit, also courtesy of The Lorain County Historical Society. The display was created in part from a grant by the Lorain County Solid Waste Management District and was designed to provide a mobile history center that can travel around the City, sharing even more information about Elyria's history in variety of locations around the City.
For more information about these and other programs, please call the LCHS at 440-322-3341

Francesca Gentile, long-time Elyria business owner and proprietor of Coiffures by Francesca in Elyria, is retiring after nearly 40 years in the beauty business. Originally from Italy, Francesca moved her with her new husband and started her path towards the American Dream. After a few short years of hard work she had earned her beauty license, studied our history and became an American citizen, and started her own business which blossomed into a tremendous success. Her business model revolved around serving the people of our community, providing low-cost, high-quality haircuts and beauty needs since 1984, and that model will continue with a new owner, Annette Rawlings, under the new name “Francesca’s Unleashed.”
It was an honor to meet with both ladies at the grand re-opening of Francesca’s Unleashed last Saturday, April 28th. Please take some time to stop in and get to know the new owner at 468 N. Abbe in Elyria.
