Mariemont was founded by Mary Emery in memory of her husband Thomas J. Emery, noted Cincinnati philanthropist.  She took her farm in the country and lessons she had learned from many trips to England and designed the community.  As one of the first planned communities in the United States, Mariemont is recognized for its charming historic architecture (reminiscent of those trips to England), award winning schools, walkability and friendly, community-minded residents.
