Founded as a railroad suburb and temperance community in 1871 next to the Mill Creek, Bond Hill is primarily a residential neighborhood that offers a variety of homes from classic Tudors set on majestically in wooded landscapes to newly built houses.
The majority of homes are free-standing single-family houses, while there are also a good number of two-family homes. Many striking homes are located in Old Bond Hill which includes one-of-a-kind Queen Anne and Victorian-style homes. There are also newly built homes in the community.
Queen City Metro buses serve Bond Hill at about 25 minute intervals and more often during the rush hours. Two main roads through Bond Hill, Paddock Road and Reading Road, have direct access roads to I-75 and I-71. Driving time to Downtown Cincinnati is about 10 minutes.
