Effective November 7, 2013 the Black River Historical Society of Lorain, Ohio is now the Lorain Historical Society. Members of the historical society selected the Lorain Historical Society as the new name on October 30, 2013 and this was approved by the Ohio Secretary of State on November 7, 2013. We are pleased to formally announce this change and hope that this is the first of many steps that the historical society is taking toward increasing awareness of the rich history and tradition of the City of Lorain.
