The more things change the more Newtown stays the same. Founded in the early 1700’s, the quaint village of Newtown, Ohio has maintained its charm and small-town feeling.
It’s a place to live the serene country life. But Newtown is anything but distanced from contemporary living. It is surrounded by the communities of Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Madeira, Mariemont and Terrace Park. So while some Newtownians enjoy a visit to the Dairy Corner or historic Church Street, others shop the super stores only minutes away. The tranquil settings of older homes mix beautifully with the newer spacious home in Ivy Hills and new apartments and condominiums. Children and adults play soccer, softball and picnic in several lush parks. Newtown is three square miles of small-town life with the services you need for your contemporary lifestyle.
Newtown offers easy access to I-275 and Columbia Parkway which is a 20-minute drive to downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is approximately 30 minutes away.
Mercy Health - Anderson Hospital in Anderson Township is within a 10-15 minute drive. This 96-bed acute care unit serves the community with 24-hour emergency service, extensive outpatient services, diagnostic and rehabilitative treatments and a variety of surgical and medical procedures. The Five Mile and Beechmont Avenue area (about 15 minutes away) also has offices for general and specialty doctors including facilities for The Christ Hospital, Tri-Health and Children’s Hospital Anderson. There are several other fine Cincinnati hospitals within a 25-minute drive.
The heart of “downtown” Newtown has many local shops and restaurants to enjoy. Residents enjoy the Main Street Cafe, and Urban Grill on Main as well as Just Q’in Barbeque.
