Munroe Falls, A Great Place to Call Home E-mail

Located in the heart of northeast Ohio, Munroe Falls offers affordable, upscale housing in great neighborhoods that promote family and community values.

Excellent schools and outstanding services abound while still maintaining a small town atmosphere of ice cream socials and a Farmers’ Market in Guise Park during the summer. The community boasts outstanding protection and services provided by the men and women of the Police, Fire, EMS and Service Departments allowing Munroe Falls to be one of the safest communities in the area.

Guise Park offers a playground with jungle gym and swing set, refurbished tennis and basketball courts, in addition to the Lodge that can be rented for parties and meetings. Brust Park, situated next to the Cuyahoga River has a new amphitheater and access to the Metro Parks Hike and Bike Trail.

Although Munroe Falls is primarily a “bedroom community” of 5300 residents, it is also home to many fine businesses and industries.

Vital Statistics

is located at latitude 41.14 and longitude -81.44 at an elevation of 1,030 feet. Located in Ohio's Summit County in the United States, it is in the Eastern time zone (GMT -5) and observes daylight savings time.

Munroe Falls has a population of 5,012 with 2,189 housing units; a land area of 2.74 sq. miles; a water area of 0.09 sq. miles; and a population density of 1,829.20 people per sq. mile (Census 2010).

The city shares a school system with neighboring Stow, Ohio; the system is comprised of six elementary schools, one intermediate, one middle, and one high school.


In 1817 a log dam was built in the Cuyahoga River to power a saw and grist mill. This power source attracted small industries to what was then referred to as the town of Florence.  In 1836 the Munroe Brothers of Boston purchased 200 acres of land in Florence, started the Munroe Falls Manufacturing Company, and renamed Florence, Munroe Falls. 

Completed in 1841, the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal created great prosperity for the region. The grist mill was converted to manufacture paper, and was purchased by the Cleveland Paper Company in 1866. The mill property is currently owned by Sonoco products, a valued member of the community to this day.

In 2006, in an effort to improve flow and aeration of the Cuyahoga River, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) removed the dam that created the city's namesake falls, accompanied by landscaping and beautification of the river banks. A lighted observation deck now marks the former dam site, and a small amphitheater has been added to the hillside, constructed of large hewn stones salvaged from the dam.
