Paddock Hills is a small neighborhood located between Reading and Paddock Roads and consists of eight streets. In the early 1800s, the area was a rest stop for travelers along the Miami and Erie Canal that ran through what is now Tennessee Avenue. Paddock Hills was incorporated as part of Cincinnati in 1903, and houses started being constructed in 1919. Many Tudor-style homes were constructed and each home had a poplar tree and pin oak. Architect Abram Domba, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed several of the modern-style homes in the area. Many streets in Paddock Hills are winding cul-de-sacs, making the area a very pleasant place to live. The community is very close and publishes a monthly newsletter.
