"Easy access to home and industry"

Madison Rd. is a long Cincinnati street that begins just below Indian Hill in Madisonville. The neighborhood was originally founded as Madison, Ohio. In 1809; and both the community and the street were named after newly elected president, James Madison.

Long before Red Bank Expressway began to thrive as a Madisonville commercial area, Madison Rd was the neighborhood's original business district. It's still lined with small shops, offices, social service agencies and churches. The Cincinnati Children's home is on Madison Rd. Reconstruction on the old Newtown site brought Medpace, an international clinical research organization, to a spot a few feet away from Madison Rd. Madison Rd is a great place for businesses, but it's residential as well.

Of the few single family homes left on Madison Rd., most are old and large. They're not in perfect shape, but they look pretty good considering their age. There are a number of multi-family residences along Madison Rd., from 4 family apartment buildings to larger developments. St Paul Village is a multi-building apartment community with affordable housing for seniors at 5515 Madison Rd.: http://stpaulvillage.com/ .

For drivers who choose to avoid the highway, Madison Rd. offers an easy route to Mariemont, Indian Hill and other eastern suburbs. For that reason it's often used as an alternate route instead of I-71. That makes it especially busy during rush hour.
