Dayton Real Estate Information

Dayton is a relatively small suburban city found in the northernmost section of the state of Kentucky. Dayton had a population of approximately five thousand nine hundred residents as of the census taken in the year two thousand, although given the growth rates of the surrounding regions, the population of Dayton should have exceeded six thousand by a substantial amount in the last nine years. Dayton is situated in Campbell County, immediately along the Ohio River. Dayton is immediately across the river from the Buckeye State of Ohio, although it is not to be confused with the large Ohio city of the same name. Dayton encompasses a total area of more than one and a half square miles, including nearly a third of a square mile of water. The area which is now considered Dayton was originally populated by mound-building Native Americans, who settled the area well before non-Native Americans – literally thousands of years prior. The history of Dayton began as a ferry crossing during the nineteenth century, and eventually developed into the two communities of Jamestown and Brooklyn in the middle of the nineteenth century. The two communities merged in the year eighteen sixty seven, and received their current name from the the eponymous Ohio city. Important founding figures of Dayton include James Berry, Henry Walker, and James McArthur, some of which were from families that had a role in founding other communities in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky.

The existence of Dayton was threatened by a series of floods in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, although that threat was eradicated with the erection of a floodwall in the year nineteen eighty one. Educational opportunities in Dayton are offered by a number of public and private schools, including Lincoln Elementary School, a preschool, and Dayton High School. Some parks in the general area of Dayton include Eden Park, Sawyer Park, and the Krohn Conservatory, while notable attractions in and around Dayton include the Marianne Theater, the Sigra Gallery, the Taft Museum of Art, and even the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.
