After the American Revolution, the northern sliver of what would be the State of Ohio was parceled off as the Connecticut Western Reserve, where residents of that state, largely veterans, could set up a homestead. This gave the local architecture a mixture of the prevalent “Federal” style and that of New England. Many businesses moved from the population centers of Cleveland and Toledo to more small-town areas like Medina and Middlefield.

Neither character is either a saint nor the devil, just two human beings with the flaws and their strengths.
