Located in southwestern Ohio, Mt. Healthy evolved from a pioneer village on the Hamilton Turnpike into a bustling community center in the early 1900s that attracted students and shoppers from surrounding areas. Early settlers were diverse in beliefs and abilities. They were patriotic and hardworking and valued education. Together they built a supportive village in which to live. Their children grew to be productive citizens who were thrifty and industrious in their lives, and that tradition continues today. Mt. Healthy is known for its healthy environment, its unique tailoring industry from 1850 to the 1940s, and its business district that consists of historic commercial buildings constructed with various architectural styles.
