Chippewa Lake Amusement Park in Medina County, Ohio opened in 1878 and was closed in 1978.  The rides and concessions were left unmaintained for over 30 years.  Chippewa Lake was scheduled to be torn down in 2010.  However, due to a lawsuit the plans wre cancelled.  As of today, the park still stands.  If you get a chance to photograph an old abandond amusement park, take the opportunity as there are numerous gems to photography in these old abandoned places.
