Donate Now to Save Grove Hill

Chagrin Falls is a special place. Filled with historic homes and buildings, it is a community where folks walk to local shops and the library, gather at Riverside Park, and stop for a snack at the Popcorn Shop. Neighbors know and look out for each other. Chagrin is a place where residents cherish the traditions of their community.

However, Chagrin Falls’ legacy and unique character are under threat. A local developer submitted plans to demolish the historic Bancroft House atop Grove Hill, replacing it with up to five new homes. The move would change the character of the iconic landscape of Chagrin Falls forever.

Recently, we reached an agreement to purchase the house and the property. But our fight to save Grove Hill is only partially complete. If the Land Conservancy is unable to raise $600,000 by May 9, the deal falls through and the developer will renew his efforts to demolish the historic home and build up to five new homes on the site. Now, Western Reserve Land Conservancy is in the midst of an urgent fundraising campaign to save this property from development, and we need your help.
