The Chagrin Falls Historical Society Museum displays both current, themed exhibits that change periodically, and permanent exhibits of life, industry, and society in Chagrin Falls.
Chagrin Falls 1890’s
Our current exhibit, Chagrin Falls 1890’s, runs through December, 2017. Chagrin Falls was a thriving mill town in the 1890’s. It had a diverse economic population – the wealthy business owners, and the poor or middle class workers. This exhibit shows what the “well to do” would wear, and some of the latest kitchen gadgets. It also shows some of the activities available to everyone like toys, bicycling, and the Interurban Electric Railway. Please stop in to see what life was like in Chagrin Falls 130 years ago.
Our permanent exhibits include displays of local industries, and contributions of our residents in both war and peace.
