Cincinnati is divided into five districts and each district into smaller neighborhoods. Cincinnati District Four includes Mount Auburn, Corryville, Walnut Hills, Avondale, North Avondale, Paddock Hills, Bond Hill, Roselawn, Carthage, and Hartwell. We’ll cover the first five in this blog. This area includes neighborhoods north of District Two and between the I-75 and I-71.
Mount Auburn is located in the hills north east of the business district. It began as a place for the city’s elite to escape the dirt and bustle of the lower city. Because it is home to some beautiful mansion in a variety of ornate styles, Mount Auburn was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
This neighborhood is home to several parks, including Jackson Hill and Inwood Park. The Christ Hospital is at the heart of Mount Auburn. Tree lined streets and red brick homes with large verandas give the neighborhood a very elegant feel.
Directly north of Mount Auburn is Corryville. Named for an early Cincinnati mayor, Corryville is kown for Short Vine Street. With small shops, restaurants (one in business since 1870), and lots of music venues, Short Vine is a great place to spend the day. The University of Cincinnati and UC College of Medicine are next to and within Corryville, respectively. The Cincinnati Zoo is on the northern edge of the neighborhood. Corryville is a mix of old and new homes and apartments.
Located between East Walnut Hills and Mount Auburn, Walnut Hills is a very historic neighborhood. The southern end includes much of Eden Park while the northern end is home to the German Cemetery. You’ll find the Harriet Beecher Stowe House and the first Cincinnati Carnegie library in the area.
The very diverse neighborhood was neglected for many years but is undergoing a restoration and rebuilding boom.
Avondale dates back to 1864. It is located west of I-71 and includes the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Like many old Cincy neighborhoods, it is an eclectic mix of old and new homes. Red brick, spacious verandas and tree lined streets are elegant reminders of past glories.
Located north of Avondale, North Avondale is home to Xavier University. It is a richly diverse area with lots of green spaces, old and new homes and apartments, and a beautiful city park. Avon Woods Nature Center and Preserve offers hiking trails over rolling hills and nature programs for all ages.
