Mt. Washington, Ohio

Mount Washington was laid out in 1846 and received its city rights in 1867. The community was annexed by the City of Cincinnati in 1911.

The Mount Washington Water Tower, located on Campus Lane between Beechmont Avenue and Sutton Avenue, is a noted Art Deco landmark and is decorated top-to-bottom with lights every Christmas. Mount Washington is home to numerous small businesses, many of them located along Beechmont Avenue / Ohio State Route 125 in the main neighborhood business district, "The Mount Washington Water Tower District" (sometimes referred to as "Uptown" as a means of distinguishing it from other business districts, including Downtown Cincinnati and the two other districts in Mount Washington).

Throughout the 1980s, the growth of large apartment complexes, and low to moderate income apartment buildings strained the neighborhood's image. Recent zoning has helped to protect the mostly residential nature of Beechmont Avenue in Mount Washington, while many of the large apartment complexes have not aged well and are often owned by absentee landlords who do not maintain them properly.

Mount Washington contains historic homes and distinctive architecture. Housing stock in the neighborhood is diverse, with values ranging from modest bungalows to million dollar estates. Wilaray Terrace, Honeysuckle Lane, and Honeysuckle Drive are lined with architect-designed homes, built from the 1920s to early 1960s. Other streets, such as Adena Trail, contain homes built throughout the later twentieth century. The Lower Salem area, located along Salem Avenue between Wayside and Kellogg Avenues, contains sprawling estates and large homes.
