MEDINA – The Medina Sandstone Society will announce the inductees in the first class of the Medina Sandstone Hall of Fame on Dec. 12.

The 4 to 6 p.m. ceremony at the Medina City Hall also will include an announcement on the Hall of Fame’s location.

The first class will include six inductees, and representatives from some of those sites are expected for the Hall of Fame announcement.

The Sandstone Society on Oct. 10 announced 22 nominees. The Hall of Fame Committee worked to narrow the list to six for the first class.

“This can be an important step for Orleans County in under scoring its great 19th Century heritage as the sandstone capital of the world in fine construction,” Bob Waters, president of the Sandstone Society, said about the Hall of Fame.
