1830 - 1900In 1819, the first known residents of the Mt. Auburn hilltop were wealthy families who built country estates. After 1849, when Mt. Auburn was annexed to Cincinnati, it continued to grow as a residential suburb. Prominent businessmen and professionals built elegant homes on Auburn Avenue, while the side streets and hillside attracted a diverse population.
The city introduced services to Mt. Auburn - water, gas, schools, and public transportation. In turn, the residents provided the city with cultural, economic, and political leadership. By the late 19th century, Mt. Auburn became a densely populated neighborhood with commercial, industrial, and civic activities.
In the 1960s, some of the aging buildings were abandoned. The community began an ongoing effort to adapt the older buildings for new uses.
