Hamilton County, 1856 Map (includes land owner names)

  1. This is one of my favorite maps of our city. There is a chance that the street you live on is named after a family that owned land nearby.

  2. A huge aha moment when looking at this map. Most roads where I grew up (Colerain) were named after the land owners. Of course, it makes perfect sense but never occurred to me as to how roads got their names.

  3. If you look at the bottom of Springdale you’ll see a creek, that creek is in Underwood Park. I was told by someone whose family bought a house in Forest Park (as these farms were being sold off) that there were other creeks and run offs through the area. But the Underwood one and the run off on the west side of Kanter Park were the only ones I could find.
