    At 65 feet, Brandywine Falls is the largest in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In 1814, George Wallace built a saw mill powered by the falls. Over the next decade, the bustling Village of Brandywine grew around the falls and added a distillery, grist and woolen mills and a dozen houses.

Today, visitors to the falls can reflect on how nature can shape the growth of human communities.
