The village of Woodlawn, with its peaceful, rustic setting, is a perfect example of how life was lived when America was young. Best of all, homeowners today can still capture a bit of that warmth and nostalgia. There are approximately 3,000 residents.
In the lovely "Mayview Forest" area, one finds historic houses so artistically designed that they seem to have grown there with the trees. Other neighborhoods have combined the charm and serenity of by-gone days with today's efficiency and pace. Here, both older and newer housing styles come together to form one of Cincinnati's proudest and most attractive communities. All neighborhoods are protectively zoned against encroaching industry. However, the interstate highway system provides easy access to jobs in nearby business districts.
There is regular bus service on Route 4 (Springfield Pike) with frequent service during the rush hours. Woodlawn is one mile east of I-75 (to Dayton) and near I-275 (Circle Freeway) which connects with I-71 (to Columbus). Downtown Cincinnati is 20 minutes away.
Cincinnati's Good Samaritan Hospital and Bethesda North are about 20 minutes' drive and six other major hospitals are only five minutes beyond that. A medical center is located on Chester Road.
Except for a large discount store, there is limited local shopping in Woodlawn. Within 15 minutes is the Kenwood Towne Centre with over 100 stores and three department stores: Nordstrom, Macy's and Dillard's.
