Otto Schoepfle did not start out to create a botanical garden. Instead, he referred to it as "the garden that grew." He traveled throughout Europe to study and learn about different botanical varieties, coming home after each trip with new ideas for plantings. This continual pursuit of learning became a dominant force in his philosophy of life.

The outdoor sculpture known as "Squaw Rock" in South Chagrin Reservation was carved by artist and blacksmith Henry Church in 1885. During his life, the American Indians knew only hardship at the hands of white settlers. Henry Church was compelled to tell the story of the American Indians. He called this work The Rape of the Indians by the White Man.
Once part of a hunting preserve, the 331-acre Swine Creek Reservation continues to offer visitors the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife. Butterflies abound in the wildflower-filled summer meadows, while meadowlarks and bobolinks nest in the low-dense plant growth. Kingfishers and great blue heron are often seen along the margins of Swine Creek.
