Cincinnati Real Estate

Cincinnati is the third largest city in the state of Ohio, located in the extreme southwest portion of the Buckeye State. Cincinnati has a population of approximately three hundred thirty two thousand five hundred residents as of census estimates taken in the year two thousand seven. Cincinnati serves as the county seat of Hamilton County, and is almost directly across from Kentucky, which is separated from Ohio thanks to the Ohio River. Non-Native Americans first began to settle the area which is now considered Cincinnati in the year seventeen eighty eight, and initially named Losantiville, a portmanteau of four different words. Cincinnati received its current name in the year seventeen ninety, and was officially incorporated as a village in the year eighteen two.

Cincinnati was re-incorporated as a city of the Buckeye State in the year eighteen nineteen, and began to grow at a substantial pace after the completion of the Miami and Erie Canal. Steam boats on the Ohio River helped to boost the population of Cincinnati to well over one hundred thousand residents by the middle of the nineteenth century. Cincinnati has a city nickname of the “Queen of the West”, and encompasses a total geographic area of about eighty square miles. Cincinnati is currently governed by Mayor Mark Mallory and City Manager Milton Dohoney as well as a nine-member city council. Cincinnati's economy is currently driven by eighteen Fortune One Thousand Companies, including Macy's and Proctor and Gamble.

The educational needs of Cincinnati are met by the Cincinnati Public School District, which is home to Walnut Hills High School, rated one of the best public high schools in the entire United States of America. Cincinnati is also home to more than three dozen private schools, as well as the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, and the Hebrew Union College. Cincinnati is proud to boast several annual cultural events, including the Cincinnati Flower show, Oktoberfest, the Tall Stacks Festival, the Festival of Lights, and the Taste of Cincinnati Festival.
