The Village of Glendale is a unique historical oasis located in Hamilton County, Ohio. Originating in 1851 and incorporated in 1855, Glendale was originally a residential development considered to be far enough away yet close enough to industrial Cincinnati. The railroad and the executives of the Procter and Gamble Company played major roles in its origin and much of Glendale remains intact as one of the earliest planned communities in Ohio. Within Glendale’s 1.7 square miles is both a National Historic Landmark Community as registered with the National Park Service, and a Certified (Historic) Local Government as recognized by the Ohio Historic Preservation Office. Today, with its many historic homes and majestic trees, Glendale is considered to be one of the most beautiful communities in the Cincinnati area.
This bedroom community is situated 16.5 miles north of Cincinnati via I-75 and is best known for its curvilinear street system and stately homes. As of the census of 2010, Glendale had a population of 2,155 people with over 1,000 housing units and nearly 80% of the homes identified as owner occupied.
Located within 25 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati, the Village of Glendale is a highly desirable community. Residents enjoy beautiful historic homes on spacious lots. In addition, Glendale is also known for its black squirrels which you can see alongside the wide variety of walking trails or while enjoying a treat at the Bluebird Bakery. And don’t be surprised by the giant hand painted squirrel statues scattered throughout the town.
The Village of Glendale is home to several popular events that residents and visitors look forward to including the Glendale Gathering Car Show, the Glendale Street Fair, and the Memorial Day Parade to name just a few. Located close to many shopping and dining options and highway systems.
Parks and Recreation
Glendale has maintained its status as a Tree City for 22 consecutive years. The Park Board meets several times a year to review the condition of trees within public right of ways and other public property. The Glendale staff assists with the enforcement of tree city guidelines to monitor threats from invasive species, as well as manage removals and replacements of the tree canopy. The “Baby Tree” planting program recognizes each new birth in the Glendale community.
Things to consider: Glendale
Per the Ohio Department of Education website, Ohio School Report Cards give each community a clear picture of the progress of the district and schools in raising achievement and preparing students for the future. Ohio School Report Cards data shows educators, school administrators and families where their schools are succeeding as well as areas where they need to improve. Schools and districts report information for the Ohio School Report Cards on specific marks of performance - called measures- within six broad components - Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success. The Department gives letter grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures. For the purposes of this summary, the letter grade for "Achievement" is shown. You are encouraged to review the Ohio School Report Cards in detail (see Ohio Department of Education website). The "Achievement" grade for the Princeton School District reported on the 2016- 2017 Report Card was a "D”. Donald Lofty, Village of Glendale Mayor, states “the Schools System is the only one in the area that has an International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programs. It is working hard to bring up the achievement levels for the special needs and ESL students of whom it has the highest percentage in the County.”
