The Village of Chagrin Falls began as a settlement of craftspeople from Massachusetts in 1844 and blossomed into a commercial center with 9 separate mills, powered by the Chagrin River.

The village lifestyle that defines Chagrin Falls is a source of community pride and a draw to visitors from around the world.
