College Hill


Settled in 1813, College Hill today has 16,000 residents within a 3.4-square-mile neighborhood and is Cincinnati’s fourth largest and most diverse neighborhood. A variety of housing options — an eclectic mix of stone, brick and wood homes of every style in every price range — make it possible for many to spend a lifetime without leaving the neighborhood. The community owes much of its character to the 19th-century colleges that gave the neighborhood its name, and though Farmers’ College and the Ohio Female College are long gone their bucolic campuses left a legacy of park-like streets.

The vibrant Hamilton Avenue business district is a hub of activity, with a host of new projects planned or underway from the College Hill Community Urban Redevelopment Corp. (CHCURC): a new parking lot at Hamilton and Marlowe, a storefront facade improvement program, small business recruitment and a major housing development at the intersection of Hamilton Avenue and North Bend Road.
