"An interesting street"

Belmont is another one of those streets a lot of people use as a short cut. They use it to travel from Hamilton Ave. to North Bend Rd, and when they do, they see a few interesting sites. There's the modern City of Cincinnati facility, College Hill Recreation Center. They have a variety of activities, a fitness center, soccer fields and much more.

There are some nice older homes on Belmont, some of them are historic with deep wooded lots, others are simply large and impressive, There are also a few smaller homes.

You'll fall in love with Laurel Court (laurelcourt.com), a huge historic home designed by Architect James Gamble Rogers and built buy industrialist Peter G. Thompson during the "Gilded Age." It's built on the highest point in Hamilton County and still referred to as "..one of the finest homes in America."

Aiken High School is or was on Belmont Ave. It's moved temporarily while the city tears down and reconstructs the school at the Belmont Ave. Location.

Belmont is minutes away from College Hill stores, schools and churches. It's close to Mercy Hospital's Mt. Airy location and also close to Mt Airy Forrest.
Pros
  • Laurel Court
  • College Hill Recreation Center
Cons
  • Traffic
