Glendale

The Glendale Historic District contains within its boundaries what is believed to be the oldest planned subdivision village in America. William Alexander Procter and William Cooper Procter (presidents of Procter & Gamble) were one-time prominent residents. One finds a variety of homes from historic residences from the 1850s and every decade thereafter in a wide variety of price points. In 2020 Glendale become a railroad "Quiet Zone". Trains are prohibited from blowing horns within the Village.

Summary
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." Trees with as many years as the village itself still surround the majestic homes. Newer developments have been designed to harmonize with the historic ambiance. In every neighborhood there is a sense of leisure and serenity, of room enough and time enough for gracious living.
