Pilgrim Village

Established in 1961, this is a homeowners community of 170 homes in Bainbridge Township, OH. The community amenities include Lake Taylor and a pavilion.


This is a private site created by a homeowner for homeowners in 2012-13; it was the first professional site for the village, does not necessarily have the latest information, has never been connected with the HOA, the official site for which is located at www.pilgrimvillage.co 


The first discussion site was the  facebook group, Pilgrim Village Courier, which has evolved into three locations: www.ToMyChagrin.com for the wider Chagrin Valley community; www.PilgrimVillager.com for Pilgrim Village residents; and www.PilgrimVillage.net which is a permanent reference source.


The HOA Pilgrim Village board is called The Lake Colony Boardconfusing, yes. The reason is that the original conception for the community included two lakes, a second to the northeast of Lake Taylor. Some Google maps still show the second lake which never existed. The board was to have included both lakes in the original design.

History.  The development is located just off of State Route 306 (Chillicothe Road), south of the Route 422 exchange, and north of Taylor May Road which is named for the two farms on each end from which land the development was created.

Pilgrim Lake Colony, Inc. is the legal corporation of Pilgrim Village. Homeowners in Pilgrim Village must purchase capital stock of this Corporation in order to have all rights and privileges assigned to those who live in the Pilgrim Village community. A Board of Directors is elected, according to by-laws, to govern and oversee all official business of the Corporation.

Pilgrim Village members in good standing who wish to use the Pavilion should see the Rules.
