There's only one Chagrin Falls and physically, it's a beautiful place. It is also my hometown. I find it funny that a guy from New Jersey picked this for his comic. I don't think he's hating on it, just taking advantage of it's peculiar name. If you visit Chagrin Falls Public Library, you can read about the varying views how the city got its name, which is still debated today. Some say that Native Americans picked a spot farther down the Cuyahoga River to start a village, but then a flooded, raging Chagrin River took them to what is now CF. While, the historical marker at the falls says the Chagrin River drew its name from a French trader named Francois Seguin, who traded with Native Americans in northeast Ohio during the mid-1700s. Seguin's name got distorted into Chagrin over time. TMI?
