Originally established as a residential enclave for many of Cincinnati’s wealthy mid-19th-century industrialists, including the son of a Procter & Gamble founder, James N. Gamble, Westwood has evolved into a socioeconomically and culturally diverse neighborhood with a lot of heart and a commitment to family life. Incorporated as a village in 1868, Westwood was annexed into the city of Cincinnati in 1896. It is the city’s largest neighborhood and the most populous in Hamilton County. Located about 7 miles west of downtown Cincinnati, its main thoroughfares and side streets feature many decorative houses, with a cluster of remarkable civic buildings surrounding Westwood Town Hall. Immediately to the west is Cheviot, one of the oldest suburban communities in Hamilton County. Where these two communities begin and end confounds even longtime residents. Mt. Airy Forest, adjacent immediately to the north, is Cincinnati’s largest forest and one of the largest municipal parks in the United States at 1,470 acres.
