Pleasant Run, Ohio
The community was originally called the "Farms" and was the site of the fifth Cincinnati Homearama in the mid 1960s.
Since that time, nearly 1,200 attractive, well-designed homes have been added and many border on private, "greenbelt" property. The open space of over 60 acres of "greenbelt" land lends a special quality of life to its residents. Many of the dedicated homeowners belong to the popular Civic Association which maintains the swim club and is responsible for both sporting and recreational activities. Country-like qualities, public-spirited citizens, and easy access to all parts of the Cincinnati area make this unique community a prime attraction.
