The Little Miami Railroad was chartered on March 11, 1836,
to build a track from Cincinnati to Xenia. In 1844, its rails
were laid through the Butterworth farm. The Little Miami
was leased and named the Pennsylvania Railroad Co, in 1869.
From 1880 to 1900, railroad transportation and services
flourished in Loveland. There were 40 passenger trains per
day and 12 scheduled freight trains from Loveland and
Cincinnati. Many of the people employed by the railroads
lived along Railroad Avenue. Commuting to Cincinnati from
Loveland took 37 to 55 minutes. In 1906, monthly tickets
were $7; single fare was 45 cents, and a ten- ride ticket
was $3.25. There were 12 eastern and western mails arriving
daily. Loveland was a truly prosperous railroad town.
