Cincinnati is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio that serves as county seat of Hamilton County. Settled in 1788, the city is located on the north side of the confluence of the Licking with the Ohio River. With a population of 298,550, Cincinnati is the third-largest city in Ohio and the 65th-largest city in the United States.
History: Cincinnati was founded by European Americans in 1788 when Mathias Denman, Colonel Robert Patterson and Israel Ludlowlanded at the spot on the north bank of the Ohio River opposite the mouth of the Licking River and decided to settle there. In 1880, the city government completed the Cincinnati Southern Railway to Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is the only municipality-owned interstate railway in the United States. In the early 19th century, Cincinnati was an American boomtown in the heart of the country; it rivaled the larger coastal cities in size and wealth. Because it is the first major American city founded after the American Revolution as well as the first major inland city in the country, Cincinnati is sometimes thought of as the first purely “American” city.
Economy: Major corporations have their head offices in Cincinnati, such as Procter & Gamble, The Kroger Company, and Macy’s, Inc., amongst others. Kroger, the largest employer in the city, has 17,000 employees. The University of Cincinnati is the second largest, with 15,162 employees. The Cincinnati metropolian area’s economy grew the fastest among major cities in the Midwest, new federal data shows. Among the largest metro economies, Cincinnati was the 20th fastest-growing region in the U.S. Powering Cincinati growth is its professional and business services sector – which includes legal, accounting, architectural, engineering, advertising services and other services – that contributed to nearly half the increase.
Culture: There are so many things to do, places to go, stores to shop, and restaurants to sample that no visit seems long enough. And if sports is your thing, the Reds, Bengals, Cyclones, Bearcats, Musketeers and more than 75 golf courses are waiting to take your game to the next level. If you haven’t seen Cincinnati USA in the last year, you haven’t seen the New Cincinnati USA. Explore the new downtown hotels, restaurants, entertainment districts and casino. The new Cincinnati USA is a fun, vibrant, quirky, sophisticated, entertaining, sporty, high-tech, business oriented, compact, urban, old-world, new media city.
Cincinnati USA is in the midst of an exciting renaissance. There’s a convergence of new developments, projects and convention wins taking shape that collectively makes this one of the most progressive, game-changing eras in our region’s history. Almost all of this progress will directly impact and benefit visitors to the region. Cincinnati experienced a similar boom starting in 2003 when the new Reds and Bengals Stadiums, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the renovated Duke Energy Convention Center and new Fountain Square emerged in rapid succession. But this latest surge of activity is even more exciting. These projects bring completely new experiences to the region, change the city landscape, appeal to a broad cross-section of individuals and businesses, and represent more than $1.4 billion in new infrastructure spending from the northern suburbs to the Ohio River.
