About Evergreen Hill Cemetery:
Evergreen Hill Cemetery was the second cemetery established in
the Village and Township. The first Chagrin Falls Burying Ground was
established in the 1840s by George Stocking who purchased land at the top of Grove Hill on the west side of North Main Street where he proceeded to sell burial lots to individual families. There were several other small cemeteries outside of the village boundaries where members of the Chagrin Falls community were buried. By the 1860s the village had outgrown the Grove Hill Cemetery so the land on South Franklin Street which was owned by the Township, was deeded to the Village. Additional land was acquired from Village residents Robert and Caroline Barrows, and Albon B. Gardner.
The first burial in the Cemetery took place in 1863. Some families removed the remains of their family members from Grove Hill Cemetery to Evergreen Hill, although the Grove Hill Cemetery was active until 1869. The Chagrin Falls Township Trustees still maintain the grounds of the cemetery.
