Lorain, Ohio is located within the northeastern portion of Ohio State on Lake Erie. It is located at the mouth of the Black River, some 30 miles west of Cleveland. With a population of around 64,097, Lorain is the tenth largest city in Ohio State. The area was first settled in the year 1807 and originally named Charleston, but afterward the name was changed to Lorain after a province in France.

Until 2005, the Ford Motor Company operated an assembly plant in the city of Lorain. The Ford Econoline E-series van, Mercury Montego and Ford Torino were assembled there, and from 1975 to 1999 the Mercury Cougar and Ford Thunderbird were made in the Lorain plant. Steel has been a mainstay of the city's economy ever since the year 1895. Called "Steel City," Lorain has steel mills extending for practically 3 miles on the south side of the city. Most of the mills are owned by United States Steel Mills and a few are owned by Republic Steel. Thousands of local residents are working at these mills. One of the few integrated steel mills still remaining in the country is located in Lorain.

The original impetus for the steel industry was the railroad. Workers migrated to the city of Lorain from numerous parts of the country seeking jobs within the flourishing shipyards and at the steel mills. The city of Lorain experienced a setback during the year 1924 when a tornado damaged a lot of Lorain City and caused numerous deaths.

Lorain has numerous beautiful beaches and parks along the shoreline of Lake Erie and the Black River, which provide ample recreational areas for the city's visitors and residents. Residents enjoy strolling and bicycle riding on the paths at Longfellow, Oakwood and Central parks. The area boasts several beautiful beaches. Century Beach is popular with both tourists and residents. Lorain Harbor is a great place for bird watching. Water sports are famous on Lake Erie and the Black River. Residents benefit from Lorain's proximity to Cleveland where there are many professional sporting events and other entertainment opportunities.

The Lorain area is very culturally diverse because of the many nationalities which came to work at the shipyards and steel mills. Downtown Lorain had to be rebuilt after the destructive 1924 tornado. A number of historic buildings were constructed, like for example the Lorain Palace Theatre which opened in 1928 and is still in operation. A lot of tourists come to the Lorain International Festival held during the summer season.
