Ludlow Creek, a tributary of the Stillwater River, flows through Ludlow Falls. The village's name comes from the waterfall of the stream located in the village. The falls were lit up during the Christmas season but has been canceled due to lack of funding.

There was a railroad line through Ludlow Falls that was built in 1881 from Springfield, OH to Indianapolis, IN. It was later owned by the New York Central Railroad. There was very little on-line traffic and the line was lightly used by the 1970s. The line was not included in the 1976 makeup of Conrail and the last train ran on March 31, 1976. The tracks were pulled up shortly thereafter.
