The Village of Indian Hill is a city in Hamilton County, Ohio, United States, and an affluent suburb of the Greater Cincinnati area. The population was 5,785 at the 2010 census.[6] Prior to 1970, Indian Hill was incorporated as a village, but under Ohio law became designated as a city once its population was verified as exceeding 5,000. The municipality then changed its name to add "Village" into the official name; legally it is "The City of The Village of Indian Hill". The Village of Indian Hill is served by the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District (public school district). It has previously been named the "Best Place to Raise a Family" by the magazine Robb Report.[7]

Geography

The Village of Indian Hill is located at (39.199193, -84.339718).[8]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.65 square miles (48.30 km2), of which, 18.55 square miles (48.04 km2) is land and 0.10 square miles (0.26 km2) is water.[1]

History

Indian Hill began as a farming community, which from about 1904 began to attract Cincinnatians, who bought up its farmhouses as rural weekend destinations. They reached Indian Hill on the Swing Line, a train running between downtown Cincinnati and Ramona Station; the site is now the location of Indian Hill's administration building at Drake and Shawnee Run roads.

The rolling country appealed to a group of four Cincinnati businessmen who had built homes there in the early 1920s and envisioned a more ambitious rural settlement, persuading friends to join them in 1924 in forming the Camargo Realty Co. Camargo assembled 12,000 acres (49 km2) of farmland and divided some into 25-acre (100,000 m2) plots, sold for $75 to $150 per acre, and a district of grand mansions with stables and outbuildings grew up, with kennels that housed the Camargo Hunt. Some were authentic estates, such as the 1,200-acre (4.9 km2) "Peterloon" of John J. Emery, which has since been subdivided into lots as small as 1 acre (4,000 m2).[9] One hundred percent of Indian Hill is zoned as single-family residential or agricultural.[10]
