"Old World Charm and New Development Meet in the West End"

The West End of Cincinnati is exactly that, the west end of the City or, more precisely, the north-west end. At one point, it was largely a low income housing neighborhood, but is now transitioning to more of a mixed-income neighborhood. The revitalization of many historic buildings, plus the construction of the City West housing development have all added to the urban appeal of the West End as a residential area. Of course, with the redevelopment comes an increase in property prices.

One of the highlights of the West End neighborhood is the Dayton Street Historic District. This area was once known as Millionaire's Row and features some excellent examples of 19th century Italianate architecture.

There are a number of businesses located throughout the West End, including a Samuel Adams Brewery located it what was once a large brewing district. There are also a number of businesses located on Linn Street.

The Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy is an excellently rated community school. Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School is also located in the West End in a completely new facility. The West End also features several parks and playground areas.

The Betts House on Clark Street is the oldest residential structure in Cincinnati and is now an interpretive museum. The Betts House, built in 1804, is also the oldest brick house in Ohio still on its original site.

The West End is an improving neighborhood with a ways to go, but it might be a good investment in the future of Cincinnati. It is conveniently located to everything the city has to offer.
