About Us

 We are your neighbors.   We are a mix of locally owned, independent businesses who live in small town America. Strong communities require a healthy business base, and businesses need strong community support. The Crystal Falls Business Association (CFBA)  is a non-profit organization that meets in the second week of the month. See the 'Members' page for the next meeting date.

     The city of Crystal Falls has a population of less than 1,500 people with approximately 1,700 in the township, but it's natural beauty and friendly people makes it a relaxing place to live. Our county is home to over 400,00 acres of forest, many lakes, and five blue-ribbon trout streams. A frequently asked question by visitors is "Where is the falls?" The answer to that question is that we no longer have a falls due to the fact that a power generating dam was built on the part of the Paint River where the falls was located.

   The CFBA welcomes new members and provides support for its current members.  Our goal is to assist and promote the Crystal Falls area business community by networking with local agencies and working with the Forest Park Schools, the Planning Commission, the Township, and the Iron County Economic Chamber Alliance.

     Yearly dues are $60 a year. Dues are used for several things:

  • periodically run 'Shop Local" ads in the local paper and radio
  • host events which promote our community.
  • pay for CFBA website  
  • enhance downtown Crystal Falls by filling the planters with attractive real and artificial plants.
  • the opportunity for business owners to be a part of an organization which is committed to enhancing the development of our community.

Next meeting - Tues., October 8, at 6:00 pm at the Crystal Theatre's Stage Left.
The CFBA is offering matching store improvement grants to all of its members for up to $500. Contact CFBA president Barb Luck at Charlie's Emporium to receive an application.
