History                                     

The area was first settled by Benjamin Stites in 1788 near the mouth of the Little Miami River where there was a crossing ford for the river. It was primarily rural and wooded with some agricultural use until the 1930's.  The development of the area then took place after the building of the Beechmont Levee, which made the area reliably accessible. Today it is bordered by the Ohio River, Little Miami River, Mt. Washington (City of Cincinnati) and Clermont County.  The terrain is full of beautiful rolling hills and wooded hillsides.
