Cincinnati is divided into five districts and each district into smaller neighborhoods. District Three includes Riverside, Sayler Park, Sedamsville, East Price Hill, Lower Price Hill, West Price Hill, Westwood, East Westwood, Villages of Roll Hill, South Cumminsville, Millvale, English Woods, North Fairmount, and South Fairmount. We’ll cover the last eight in this blog. This area includes the western sections of Cincinnati.
The largest of the District 3 neighborhoods, Westwood is north of West Price Hill. The neighborhood started as an upscale neighborhood. In fact, one of the early residents was James Gamble, founder of Proctor and Gamble. Many homes are on spacious lots and sport wide verandas. This is a great neighborhood for people who like classic homes. Westwood includes about half of Mt Airy Forest, 1,459 acres with hiking and bridle trails, Ohio’s only wheelchair accessible public treehouse, a dog park, playgrounds, picnic areas, and disc golf.
East Westwood is an older neighborhood of single-family homes and apartment buildings. There is easy access to I-74 and the peace and quiet of Mt Airy Forest.
The Villages of Roll Hill
The Villages of Roll Hill was originally known as Fay Apartments. Almost all the area is low income housing composed predominately of upgraded rentals.
South Cumminsville was founded in the early 1900s. Northside and South Cumminsville were once one entity, Cumminsville. They separated in the 1950s. The area has seen a lot of blight but Cincinnati and the South Cumminsville Community Council (SCCC) are working to improve the neighborhood. Most homes are older and in need of TLC.
Millvale is a small neighborhood that is predominately a public housing complex.
English Woods was one of Cincinnati’s largest public housing projects. It mostly torn down and the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority is planning to build an urban village.
North Fairmount and South Fairmount
Fairmount started as a few farm houses. As Cincinnati grew, the area included factories and a brewery. As more people moved in, the area was divided into North and South Fairmount, Millvale and English Woods. Like South Cumminsville, the Fairmounts have been blighted but residents have plans to bring the area back.
