Chagrin Falls Overview

This suburban village embraces the best of small-town America with its bustling downtown and neighborhoods filled with beautiful homes, Ohio Magazine

Once you arrive in Chagrin Falls, you’ll understand why it was named for the scenic falls in the center of town.  Chagrin falls is known for its historic architecture, restaurant scene, interesting antique shopping and art galleries.  Located 16.42 miles from Cleveland Ohio, Chagrin Falls was recently named one of Ohio’s best cities to live in. (

Founded in 1844, Chagrin Falls has a population of 4,056 and is only about 2.1 square miles in size.

Chagrin Falls’ downtown hosts events throughout the year, including a Blossom Time Festival in the spring, a documentary film festival each autumn, and a New Year’s Eve ball drop.  You must explore the Downtown Chagrin Falls area.

The village offers the feeling of what one imagines it might be like to step into the early years of the 20th century, except with better food and indoor plumbing.  There’s a sidewalk running along every street, kids playing in front yards, large porches adorned with American flags, and plenty of friendly residents (many of whom will ask if you’ve had an ice cream cone from the Popcorn Shop yet).
