Summary: An urban, or perhaps suburban, waterfall located right in the heart of the town of Chagrin Falls. Easy to visit and right next to an ice cream shop.

This waterfall is right in the middle of Chagrin Falls. The Main Street bridge is just above the waterfall. A small dam is just upstream on the otherside of the bridge. There is a boardwalk that takes you down to view the falls.

The falls are named for the river, which was apparently named for the French trader, Francois Séguin. There are other theories.

Chagrin Falls is about 25 miles east of Cleveland.
