Founded by Mary M. Emery in the early 20th century, Mariemont is one of the first planned communities in the United States. It is well known for its historic architecture, award‐winning schools, and community‐minded residents.
Mariemont is primarily a residential neighborhood. Approximately 3,100 residents call Mariemont home. Most of the homes in the village date back to the 1920’s when it was first developed. It is a prime example of town planning and offers a variety of housing styles, all with a historic feel. A few small developments on the far east side of Mariemont have occurred over the years but it is the historic homes surrounding the square that define the neighborhood.
Bordering the Village of Mariemont are some of Cincinnati’s wealthiest neighborhoods, including Mt. Lookout, Indian Hill, and Terrace Park. Located just to the northeast of Mariemont, Indian Hill is a completely residential, heavily wooded area with rolling hills and multi‐acreage estates. It is home to many of Cincinnati’s wealthiest residents.
The Mariemont Towne Center, with its ideal location in the heart of the Village and supported by the residents of Mariemont, Indian Hill, Terrace Park, and other nearby upper‐income neighborhoods, is well‐positioned for years to come.
