The peaceful community of Chagrin Falls is located along a beautiful 2.1 square mile stretch of land in the northern part of the state, 18 miles southeast of Cleveland. Well-kept houses and charming specialty shops accent the tree-lined streets of this delightful small town. Chagrin Falls began as a manufacturing town, but over the years has successfully evolved into a prosperous modern residential community of more than 4,200 residents. People from around the country are drawn to Chagrin Falls. This richly historic village is bisected by the Chagrin River, whose falls gave the town its name in the mid-19th century.
The nearby community of Moreland Hills is a 7.5-square-mile residential suburb located approximately 14 miles east of Cleveland. It is bounded on the north by Hunting Valley, on the south by Bentleyville, on the west by Orange and on the east by both Chagrin Falls and South Russell. Incorporated in 1929, Moreland Hills is one of seven communities that were formed from the original Orange Township. The town is now home to more than 3,500 residents and a number of restaurants, stores, recreational facilities, churches, service clubs, athletic fields, and riding trails. Moreland Hills is also the location of Hiram House Camp and Abram Garfield Farm Site Park — the birthplace of James Abram Garfield, the 20th President of the United States. Both communities feature a wide variety of lovely homes, many of which are located on large, wooded lots of at least two acres.
