Welcome to the historic Village of Gates Mills

Welcome to our Village. For over 180 years, residents have found Gates Mills—with its unique blend of Western Reserve architecture, civic engagement and convenient location—to be one of the most desirable locations in Northeast Ohio. With dozens of community organizations and multiple ways for residents to become involved in Village activities, our residents pride themselves on their strong sense of community. Similarly, our employees and our various government officials recognize that they are public servants, dedicated to maintaining our Village’s unique character and improving the lives of our residents.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and please feel free to visit us in person anytime.
