    • Medina County derives its name from Medina River that traverses the northeastern portion of the county
    • Many settlements in Medina County (Castroville, Quihi, Vanderburg, etc.) were laid in a pattern reminiscent of European villages (town lots surrounded by protective, outlying farming plots) due to influx of German and French immigrants in the mid 1800s
