College Hill, Cincinnati's fifth largest and most diverse neighborhood, owes much of its character to the nineteenth-century colleges that gave the neighborhood its name. Though Farmers' College and the Ohio Female College are long gone, their bucolic campuses left a legacy of park-like streets. Large retirement homes, several more than a century old, make the neighborhood a haven for elderly people, while an abundance of cottage-style homes attract young families, and neat apartments, many dating from the 1920s, accommodate renters. From its earliest days, when settlers dreamed of educating a new generation of American pioneers, College Hill has remained a welcoming home to people of all ages, races, and classes.
