Cuyahoga Falls is the second largest city in Summit County, with 51,000 people in 2020.


Founded in 1812, the city was named after the waterfalls on the Cuyahoga River that pass through the city. The city was named Manchester, but changed its name by the request of the postmaster at the time. In 1985, the city merged with Northhampton Township, making it the first voter approved merger in the state's history.
