Tell us about your quarantine experience and show us your pictures!
WHO: All ages! As long as you live in the Chagrin Valley
WHAT: Written stories, pictures, artwork, etc. We want to hear from you about your experience during this historic time in the world. Be a part of Chagrin history by sharing your or your family’s story.
We welcome photos of yourself and your family during this time. These will be relevant for our extensive photo archive. Did you decorate your home with a message for healthcare workers? Did your kids put their artwork in the window? Send us pictures of your family game night or other indoor activities. Did you take a screenshot of a Zoom video chat with your friends and family? Did you make your dining room table a classroom for your kids? Send us pictures of every day quarantine life!
WHEN: Immediately! However this will be a continuing project. There is no deadline. We would prefer to get your story while things are still happening and fresh in your mind. Yes, you can submit multiple times!
WHY: We will keep your stories as part of our archives. We might use your story on a COVID-19 exhibit in twenty years; it will also be available for researchers!
HOW: Email your stories and pictures to Ruth at [email protected]

COVID-19 is having a major impact on all of our lives. Just like all of you, we are following the Governor’s stay at home order. If you or your kids are looking for something different to do, have no fear because history is here! We are bringing history right to you in your own home! We will be posting videos and pictures on social media of our Innovations Exhibit in the museum and also a few behind the scenes videos. If you are not on social media, here is a way you can view our Virtual Museum videos via YouTube!
For the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff, the Chagrin Falls Historical Society & Museum will temporarily close to the public until further notice. But this doesn’t mean you can stop learning about Chagrin history! You can view our touchscreen project (the same one at the Intermediate School and in our museum is on our website, although the website is not touchscreen, you must use your mouse!) Go to the tab that says Discover Chagrin History at the top of our website front page and learn more!
SAVE THE DATE! May 30, 2020 (update: The Home Tour will be rescheduled for the Fall. Please stay tuned for the new date!)
