Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout are two neighboring suburbs that blend together almost seamlessly to form one of Cincinnati’s oldest areas. Hyde Park was established in 1892 by Cincinnati businessmen who wanted an exclusive community for the wealthy and named it after New York’s Hyde Park. The area was annexed by the City of Cincinnati in 1903. Mt. Lookout is located adjacent to Hyde Park and was named for the Mount Lookout Observatory which was moved to this neighborhood in 1873.
Head up the hill and there are larger home estates with magnificent Ohio River views as well as wondering streets of beautiful lawns featuring exceptional properties.
