"Sedamsville has charming old buildings but lacks any charm"

Sedamsville is an old riverside community on the outskirts of Cincinnati and spans less than a square mile. It is mainly located along the River Road corridor. It is a community that has definitely seen better days...and those days were long, long ago. The area is full of many historically old homes and buildings, but as most of the residents in this area are on the very low end of the socio-economic scale, these buildings are in great disrepair.

Former major leaguer Pete Rose was born in Sedamsville and, while he may be banned from baseball for life, he is still a hometown son honored by his native Cincinnati. There is a park in Sedamsville that bears his name, one of several parks in this community, which adds to its picturesque appeal.

One of the more interesting things about Sedamsville, is that it has several places that are reported to be haunted. Some of these become special attractions during the Halloween season. One of the haunted places, the Sedamsville Rectory, is open for ghost tours year round. The building is over 130 years old and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Sedamsville is near the Delhi area, which is where you would need to go for any kind of shopping. There are no businesses to speak of in Sedamsville. Just head up Delhi Pike to reach the shopping and dining options in Delhi.

Because the properties in Sedamsville are typically older and run down, you can find some real estate bargains...as long as you don't mind a major renovation.
