Price Hill, OH
Situated atop one of the highest of Cincinnati's historic hills, Price Hill is a community of Old World charm.
One finds breathtaking Victorian era homes and renaissance architecture in its churches and public buildings. Being one of Cincinnati's earliest outlying settlements, many different periods of growth have contributed to the varied cultures and economic levels. Houses from the last century survive with newer homes. Many of the magnificent large Victorian dwellings are being artfully and carefully restored by young artisans. One can also find many newer homes of brick and frame, more modest in size and price. Altogether, with its fast access to the heart of the downtown district, its many beautiful views from hilltop and hillside properties, the variety of living styles and active revitalization activity, Price Hill is becoming a popular place to live.
