The village of Glendale has had a reputation for aristocratic beauty since its incorporation in 1855. Approximately 2200 residents enjoy small-town living in an area of approximately one square mile, including 392 acres designated a Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior. Glendale is believed to be America's oldest subdivision village laid out in a curvilinear plan according to topography. There is an activities center in the historic village square, and amenities include some of Greater Cincinnati's finest restaurants and chic shops. The sense of magic here is created in a park-like setting of winding lanes, still lighted by old-style gas lamps. Glendale is designated a "Tree City U.S.A."

In every neighborhood there is a sense of leisure and serenity, of room enough and time enough for gracious living.
