The Kayahoga Falls was founded by William Wettmore in 1812 on the land owned by Joshua Stow, a judge in Midtown, Connecticut. The name of the early settlement was Manchester. However, since there were several place names called Manchester in Ohio, the name was changed to Kayahoga Falls at the request of the post office. The name Kayahoga Falls comes from the 'waterfall' that the Kayahoga River forms in this area. This 'waterfall' is a rapids valley that extends two miles (3.2 km) in length, and the difference is more than the Niagara Falls.
In order to utilize the water power of this waterfall, a dam was built in the Kayahoga River, and later a mill, a refinery and a lumber mill were built using the water power brought by the dam. Houses were built around the wood made from the lumber mill. Before long, in 1826, a village called Old Village was divided downstream. However, the village was completely destroyed by the flood in the same year.
In 1836, Kayahoga Falls village was officially incorporated into the public by taking 240 blocks from the two counties of Stow and Tolmudge (today both cities are cities). In 1841, the Summit County Assembly designated the Kayahoga Falls as the County Office Location, but the State Council overturned it and ordered the County Office Location to be decided based on a referendum. As a result of the referendum, the county office was placed in Acron. In 1851, Kayahoga Falls Township was established outside Kayahoga Falls Village. However, in 1853, it was discovered that the villages and the wards occupied the same area, and the Kayahoga Falls were unified into the districts and the village assembly was dissolved. This form continued until 1868.
The Kayahoga Falls had been developed as an industrial city using the water power of the Kayahoga River since the beginning, but the river bank industry declined as in the other cities of the Last Belt after the 1970s. Instead, the main focus of urban development was shifted to housing development in the suburbs of Acron, especially housing with a single house. In 1985, the former Kayahoga Falls City and the Northampton Township District were merged to form the new Kayahoga Falls City, whose area has tripled.
