Erlanger Real Estate Information

Erlanger is a medium sized city situated in the Bluegrass Region of the state of Kentucky. Erlanger has a population of approximately sixteen thousand seven hundred residents, making it average sized for the communities of Northern Kentucky. Erlanger is situated in the northeastern portion of Kenton County, which happens to be the third most populous county in the state. Erlanger, by virtue of its location in Kenton County, is found in the extreme northern portion of the state of Kentucky, relatively close to the Kentucky-Ohio border. Erlanger is found along the Ohio River, meaning that the considerably larger city of Cincinnati is just across the bridge into Ohio. Erlanger encompasses a total area of almost eight and a half square miles, of which only a slim fraction is water.

Because of its relatively large geographic size, Erlanger has a population of only about two thousand persons per square mile, substantially less than the other suburban communities of Northern Kentucky. Erlanger is home to the corporate headquarters of a number of relatively important companies, including a number of car companies. Although the original residents of the Erlanger area were Native Americans, non-Native Americans began to settle the region around the year eighteen seven. The first permanent settler was Bartlett Graves, and the population of the town grew more rapidly once a turnpike was constructed just before eighteen thirty. Erlanger received its current name in the year eighteen eighty two in honor of Baron Frederic Emile D'Erlanger, a British investor.

Erlanger was officially incorporated in the year eighteen ninety seven, and underwent its next significant period of growth during the nineteen sixties. The educational needs of Erlanger are met by schools including Tichenor Middle, Lloyd Memorial High, Miles Elementary, and a number of private institutions. Recreational attractions in and around Erlanger include the Kenton County Golf Course, the Summit Hills Country Club, and Villa Hills Civic Club Park. Erlanger is also just a short drive away from the large city of Cincinnati, which offers everything from large shopping centers to a bustling nightlife, mostly because of the city's status as the third largest in the Buckeye State.
