) is a city in the U.S. state
and the county seat
of Hamilton County
Settled in 1788, the city is located at the northern side of the confluence of the Licking
rivers, the latter of which marks the state line with Kentucky
. The city is the economic and cultural hub of Metro Cincinnati
. With an estimated population of 2,190,209, it is Ohio's largest metropolitan area and the nation's 29th-largest,
and with a city population estimated at 303,940, Cincinnati is the third-largest city in Ohio
and 64th in the United States
. Cincinnati is within a day's drive of 49.7% of the United States populace, ranking it as fourth in the list of metro areas with the largest population base within one day's drive time.
Throughout much of the 19th century, it was listed among the top 10 U.S. cities by population, surpassed only by New Orleans
and the older, established settlements of the United States eastern seaboard
, as well as being the sixth-biggest city
for a period spanning 1840 until 1860.
Cincinnati developed with fewer immigrants and less influence from Europe than East Coast cities in the same period. However, it received a significant number of German-speaking immigrants, who founded many of the city's cultural institutions. By the end of the 19th century, with the shift from steamboats to railroads drawing off freight shipping, trade patterns had altered and Cincinnati's growth slowed considerably. The city was surpassed in population by other inland cities, particularly Chicago
, which developed based on strong commodity exploitation, economics, and the railroads, and St. Louis
, which for decades after the Civil War
served as the gateway to westward migration.
Cincinnati in 1812 with a population of 2,000
Cincinnati began in 1788 when Mathias Denman, Colonel Robert Patterson
, and Israel Ludlow
landed at a spot at the northern bank of the Ohio opposite the mouth of the Licking
and decided to settle there. The original surveyor, John Filson
, named it "Losantiville".
On January 4, 1790, St. Clair
changed the name of the settlement to honor the Society of the Cincinnati.
In 1811, the introduction of steamboats on the Ohio River opened up the city's trade to more rapid shipping, and the city established commercial ties with St. Louis, Missouri
, and New Orleans
downriver. Cincinnati was incorporated as a city on March 1, 1819.
Exporting pork products and hay, it became a center of pork processing in the region. From 1810 to 1830, the city's population nearly tripled, from 9,642 to 24,831.
Construction on the Miami and Erie Canal began on July 21, 1825, when it was called the Miami Canal, related to its origin at the Great Miami River
. The first section of the canal was opened for business in 1827.
In 1827, the canal connected Cincinnati to nearby Middletown
; by 1840, it had reached Toledo
During the time, employers struggled to hire enough people to fill positions. The city had a labor shortage until large waves of immigration by Irish and Germans in the late 1840s. The city grew rapidly over the next two decades, reaching 115,000 people by 1850.
During this period of rapid expansion and prominence, residents of Cincinnati began referring to the city as the Queen City.
Industrial development and Gilded Age
Cincinnati's location, on the border between the free state of Ohio and the slave state of Kentucky, made it a prominent location for slaves to escape the slave-owning south. Many prominent abolitionists also called Cincinnati their home during this period, and made it a popular stop on the Underground Railroad
In 2004, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
was completed along Freedom Way in Downtown, honoring the city's involvement in the Underground Railroad.

In 1859, Cincinnati laid out six streetcar lines; the cars were pulled by horses
and the lines made it easier for people to get around the city.
By 1872, Cincinnatians could travel on the streetcars within the city and transfer to rail cars for travel to the hill communities. The Cincinnati Inclined Plane Company began transporting people to the top of Mount Auburn that year.
In 1889, the Cincinnati streetcar system
began converting its horse-drawn cars to electric streetcars
In 1884 outrage over a manslaughter
verdict in what many observers thought was a clear case of murder triggered the Courthouse riots
, one of the most destructive riots in American history. Over the course of three days, 56 people were killed and over 300 were injured.
The riots ended the regime of political bosses John Roll McLean
and Thomas C. Campbell
During the Great Depression
An early rejuvenation of downtown began in the 1920s and continued into the next decade with the construction of Union Terminal
, the post office, and the large Cincinnati and Suburban Telephone Company Building
. Cincinnati weathered the Great Depression
better than most American cities of its size, largely due to a resurgence in river trade, which was less expensive than transporting goods by rail. The flood in 1937
was one of the worst in the nation's history and destroyed many areas along the Ohio valley
Afterward the city built protective flood walls.
Cincinnati has many nicknames
, including Cincy, The 'Nati, The Queen City,
The Queen of the West,
The Blue Chip City,
and The City of Seven Hills.
These are more typically associated with professional, academic, and public relations references to the city, including restaurant names such as Blue Chip Cookies
, and are not commonly used by locals in casual conversation.
The seven hills are fully described in the June 1853 edition of the West American Review, "Article III--Cincinnati: Its Relations to the West and South". The hills form a crescent from the east bank of the Ohio River to the west bank: Mount Adams, Walnut Hills, Mount Auburn, Vine Street Hill, College Hill, Fairmount, and Mount Harrison.
The classic nickname "Queen City" is taken from an 1819 newspaper article
and further immortalized by the 1854 poem "Catawba Wine". In it, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
wrote of the city:
And this Song of the Vine,
This greeting of mine,
The winds and the birds shall deliver,
To the Queen of the West,
In her garlands dressed,
On the banks of the Beautiful River.
For many years, Cincinnati was known as "Porkopolis"; this less desirable nickname came from the city's large pork interests.
Newer nicknames such as "The 'Nati" are emerging and are attempted to be used in different cultural contexts. For example, a local litter
-prevention campaign uses the slogan "Don't Trash the 'Nati."
"The City of Seven Hills" is another name for the city. When the city was younger and smaller, the June 1853 edition of the West American Review
, "Article III—Cincinnati: Its Relations to the West and South" described and named seven specific hills. The hills form a crescent around the city: Mount Adams
, Walnut Hills
, Mount Auburn
, Vine Street Hill, College Hill, Fairmont (now rendered Fairmount), and Mount Harrison (now known as Price Hill). The name refers to ancient Rome, reputed to be built on seven hills.

Cincinnati, being on the heartland plain, depended on trade with the slave states south of the Ohio River at a time when thousands of black people were settling in the free state of Ohio. Most of them came after the Civil War, and were from Kentucky and Virginia with many of them fugitives who had sought freedom and work in the North. In the antebellum years, the majority of native-born whites in the city came from northern states, primarily Pennsylvania
Though 57 percent of whites migrated from free states, 26 percent were from southern states and they retained their cultural support for slavery. This quickly led to tensions between pro-slavery residents and those in favor of abolitionism
and lifting restrictions on free people of color
, as codified in the "Black Code" of 1804.
Germans were among the earliest newcomers, migrating from Pennsylvania and the backcountry of Virginia and Tennessee. General David Ziegler
succeeded General St. Clair in command at Fort Washington
. After the conclusion of the Northwest Indian War
and removal of Native Americans to the west, he was elected as Cincinnati's first town president (equivalent to a mayor) in 1802.
Cincinnati was influenced by Irishmen
, and Prussians
), seeking to emigrate away from crowding and strife. In 1830 residents with German roots made up 5% of the population, as many had migrated from Pennsylvania; ten years later this had increased to 30%.
Thousands of Germans entered the city after the Prussian revolution of 1848
, and by 1900, more than 60 percent of its population was of Prussian background.
The menial-jobbed, aggravated Irish often organized mobs and the Germans, far away from their Pennsylvania Dutch
connections, did the same. Thus, leaders of the city had to use fortifying measures against the arrivals' clashes.
Volatile social conditions saw riots in 1829
, when many blacks lost their homes and property. As the Irish entered the city in the late 1840s, they competed with blacks at the lower levels of the economy. White-led riots against blacks occurred in 1836
, when an abolitionist press was twice destroyed; and in 1842.
More than 1,000 blacks abandoned the city after the 1829 riots. Blacks in Philadelphia and other major cities raised money to help the refugees recover from the destruction. By 1842 blacks had become better established in the city; they defended themselves and their property in the riot, and worked politically as well.
Cincinnati's Jewish community
was developed by those from England and Germany. A large segment of the community, led by Isaac M. Wise
, developed Reform Judaism
in response to the influences of the Enlightenment and making their new lives in the United States. Rabbi Wise, known as a founding father of the Reform movement, and his contemporaries, bore a great influence on the Jewish faith in Cincinnati, the United States, and worldwide.
Several Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in Cincinnati, such as Procter & Gamble
, The Kroger Company
, and Fifth Third Bank
. General Electric
has headquartered their Global Operations
Center in Cincinnati. The Kroger Company employs 21,646 people locally, making it the largest employer in the city, and the University of Cincinnati is the second largest at 16,000.
Approximately 1 million attend Taste of Cincinnati

Cincinnati has many[quantify]
gourmet restaurants. The Maisonette
in Cincinnati was Mobil
Travel Guide's longest-running five-star
restaurant in the United States, holding that distinction for 41 consecutive years until it closed in 2005. Its former head chef, Jean-Robert de Cavel
, has opened four new restaurants in the area since 2001.

It was first developed by Macedonian immigrant
restaurateurs in the 1920s. Cincinnati has been called July 2016 the "Chili Capital of America" and "of the World" because it has more chili restaurants per capita than any other city in the United States or in the world.
The citizens of Cincinnati speak in a General American
dialect. Unlike the rest of the Midwest, Southwest Ohio shares some aspects of its vowel system with northern New Jersey English
Most of the distinctive local features among speakers float as Midland American.
There is also some influence from the Southern American
dialect found in Kentucky.
A touch of northern German is audible in the local vernacular: some residents use the word please
when asking a speaker to repeat a statement. This usage is taken from the German practice, when bitte
(a shortening of the formal, "Wie bitte?" or "How please?" rendered word-for-word from German into English), was used as shorthand for asking someone to repeat.

In 1950 Cincinnati reached its peak population of 504,000; it has lost population in every census-count since that time. In the late-20th century industrial restructuring caused a loss of jobs. More recently, the population has recovered slightly: the Census Bureau estimated the population to be 303,940 in 2019, representing a small increase from 296,945 in 2010.
At the 2010 census,
there were 296,943 people, 133,420 households, and 62,319 families residing in the city. The population density was 3,809.9 inhabitants per square mile (1,471.0/km2

, 45.0% African American
, 0.3% Native American
, 1.8% Asian
, 0.1% Pacific Islander
, 1.2% from other races
, and 2.5% from two or more races. Hispanic
of any race were 2.8% of the population.
There were 133,420 households, of which 25.4% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 23.2% were married couples living together, 19.1% had a female householder with no husband present, 4.4% had a male householder with no wife present, and 53.3% were non-families. 43.4% of all households were made up of individuals, and 9.9% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older.

Cityscape and climate
The city is undergoing significant changes due to new development
and private investment. This includes buildings of the long-stalled Banks project
that includes apartments, retail, restaurants, and offices, which will stretch from Great American Ball Park
to Paul Brown Stadium
. Phase 1A is already complete and 100 percent occupied as of early 2013. Smale Riverfront Park is being developed along with The Banks, and is Cincinnati's newest park. Nearly $3.5 billion have been invested in the urban core of Cincinnati (including Northern Kentucky). Much of this development has been undertaken by 3CDC
. The Cincinnati Bell Connector
began in September 2016.
Cincinnati is midway by river between the cities of Pittsburgh
, Pennsylvania, and Cairo, Illinois
. The downtown lies near the mouth of the Licking
, a confluence where the first settlement occurred. Metro Cincinnati
spans southern Ohio and Indiana, and northern Kentucky; the census bureau
has measured the city proper at 79.54 square miles (206.01 km2
), of which 77.94 square miles (201.86 km2
) are land and 1.60 square miles (4.14 km2
) are water.
The city spreads over a number of hills, bluffs, and low ridges overlooking the Ohio in the Bluegrass region
of the country.
The tristate is geographically located within the Midwest
and is on the far northern of the Upland South
Three municipalities are enveloped by the city: Norwood
, Elmwood Place
, and Saint Bernard
. Norwood is a business and industrial city, while Elmwood Place and Saint Bernard are small, primarily residential, villages. Cincinnati does not have an exclave, but the city government does own several properties outside the corporation limits: French Park

On Major League Baseball Opening Day
, Cincinnati has the distinction of holding the "traditional opener" in baseball each year, due to its baseball history. Children have been known to skip school on Opening Day, and it is commonly thought of as a holiday.
The Cincinnati Reds have won five World Series titles and had one of the most successful baseball teams of all time in the mid-1970s, known as The Big Red Machine. The Bengals have made two Super Bowl appearances since its founding, in 1981 and 1988, but have yet to win a championship. As of 2016, the Bengals have the longest active playoff win drought (26 years) despite making five straight playoff appearances from 2011 to 2015. Whenever the Bengals and Carolina Panthers
play against each other (an interconference matchup that occurs every four years), their games are dubbed the "Queen City Bowl", as Charlotte
, North Carolina, the home city of the Panthers, is also known as the Queen City.
The Bengals enjoy strong rivalries with the Cleveland Browns
and Pittsburgh Steelers
(both of whom are also members of the AFC North

Police and fire services
The city of Cincinnati's emergency services for fire, rescue, EMS, hazardous materials and explosive ordnance disposal is handled by the Cincinnati Fire Department
. On April 1, 1853, the Cincinnati Fire Department became the first paid professional fire department in United States.
The Cincinnati Fire Department operates out of 26 fire stations, located throughout the city in 4 districts, each commanded by a district chief.
The Cincinnati Fire Department is organized into 4 bureaus: Operations,
Personnel and Training,
and Fire Prevention.
Each bureau is commanded by an assistant chief, who in turn reports to the chief of department.
The Cincinnati Police Department
has more than 1,000 sworn officers. Before the riots of 2001
, Cincinnati's overall crime rate had been dropping steadily and by 1995 had reached its lowest point since 1992 but with more murders and rapes.
After the riot, violent crime increased, but crime has been on the decline since.
In 2015, there were 71 homicides.
Government and politics
Cincinnati City Hall
A reform movement arose in 1923, led by another Republican, Murray Seasongood
. Seasongood founded the Charter Committee, which used ballot initiatives in 1924 to replace the ward system with the current at-large system. They gained approval by voters for a council–manager government
form of government, in which the smaller council (compared to the number of previous ward representatives) hires a professional manager to operate daily affairs of the city. From 1924 to 1957, the council was elected by proportional representation
and single transfer voting (STV). Starting with Ashtabula in 1915, several major cities in Ohio adopted this electoral system, which had the practical effect of reducing ward boss and political party power. For that reason, such groups opposed it.
In an effort to overturn the charter that provided for proportional representation, opponents in 1957 fanned fears of black political power, at a time of increasing civil rights activism.
The PR/STV system had enabled minorities to enter local politics and gain seats on the city council more than they had before, in proportion to their share of the population. This made the government more representative of the residents of the city.
Overturning that charter, in 1957, all candidates had to run in a single race for the nine city council positions. The top nine vote-getters were elected (the "9-X system"), which favored candidates who could appeal to the entire geographic area of the city and reach its residents with campaign materials. The mayor was elected by the council. In 1977, 33-year-old Jerry Springer
, later a notable television talk show host, was chosen to serve one year as mayor.
Residents continued to work to improve their system.
To have their votes count more, starting in 1987, the top vote-getter in the city council election was automatically selected as mayor. Starting in 1999, the mayor
was elected separately in a general at-large election for the first time. The city manager's role in government was reduced.
These reforms were referred to as the "strong mayor
" reforms[by whom?]
, to make the publicate accountable to voters. Cincinnati politics include the participation of the Charter Party
, the political party with the third-longest history of winning in local elections.
On October 5, 2011, the Council became the first local government in the United States to adopt a resolution recognizing freedom from domestic violence as a fundamental human right.
On January 30, 2017, Cincinnati's mayor declared the city a sanctuary city
Due to its location on the Ohio River, Cincinnati was a border town in a free state, across from Kentucky, which was a slave state. Residents of Cincinnati played a major role in abolitionism
. Many fugitive slaves
used the Ohio at Cincinnati to escape to the North. Cincinnati had numerous stations on the Underground Railroad, but there were also runaway slave catchers active in the city, who put escaping slaves at risk of recapture.
Given its southern Ohio location, Cincinnati had also attracted settlers from the Upper South, who traveled along the Ohio River into the territory. Tensions between abolitionists and slavery supporters broke out in repeated violence, with whites attacking blacks in 1829. Anti-abolitionists attacked blacks in the city in a wave of destruction that resulted in 1,200 blacks leaving the city and the country; they resettled in Canada.
The riot and its refugees were topics of discussion throughout the country, and blacks organized the first Negro Convention in 1830 in Philadelphia
to discuss these events.
White riots against blacks took place again in Cincinnati in 1836 and 1842.
In 1836 a mob of 700 pro-slavery men attacked black neighborhoods, as well as a press run by James M. Birney
, publisher of the anti-slavery weekly The Philanthropist
Tensions increased after congressional passage in 1850 of the Fugitive Slave Act
, which required cooperation by citizens in free states and increased penalties for failing to try to recapture escaped slaves.
Located in a free state and attracting many European immigrants, Cincinnati has historically had a predominantly white population.
By 1940, the Census Bureau reported the city's population as 87.8 percent white and 12.2 percent black.
In the second half of the 20th century, Cincinnati, along with other rust belt
cities, underwent a vast demographic transformation. By the early 21st century, the city's population was 40% black. Predominantly white, working-class families who constituted the urban core during the European immigration boom in the 19th and early 20th centuries, moved to newly constructed suburbs before and after World War II. Blacks, fleeing the oppression of the Jim Crow
South in hopes of better socioeconomic opportunity, had moved to these older city neighborhoods in their Great Migration
to the industrial North. The downturn in industry in the late 20th century caused a loss of many jobs, leaving many people in poverty. In 1968 passage of national civil rights legislation had raised hopes for positive change, but the assassination of national leader Martin Luther King, Jr.
resulted in riots in many black neighborhoods in Cincinnati; unrest occurred in black communities in nearly every major U.S. city after King's murder.
More than three decades later, in April 2001, racially charged riots
occurred after police fatally shot a young unarmed black man, Timothy Thomas
, during a foot pursuit to arrest him, mostly for outstanding traffic warrants.
After the 2001 riots, the ACLU, Cincinnati Black United Front, the city and its police union agreed upon a community-oriented policing strategy. The agreement has been used as a model across the country for building relationships between police and local communities.
On July 19, 2015, Samuel DuBose
, an unarmed black motorist, was fatally shot by white University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing after a routine traffic stop for a missing front license plate. The resulting legal proceedings in late 2016
have been a recurring focus of national news media.
Several protests involving the Black Lives Matter
movement have been carried out.
Tensing was indicted on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter
, but a November 2016 trial ended in mistrial
after the jury became deadlocked
. A retrial began in May 2017, which also ended in mistrial after deadlock. The prosecution then announced they did not plan to try Tensing a third time.
The University of Cincinnati has settled
with the DuBose family for $4.8 million
and free tuition for each of the 12 children.
The University of Cincinnati
, called Cincinnati or nicknamed UC, is a public university. The University is renowned in architecture and engineering, liberal arts
, music, nursing, and social science

The city of Cincinnati has a higher than average percentage of households without a car. In 2015, 19.3 percent of Cincinnati households lacked a car, and increased slightly to 21.2 percent in 2016. The national average was 8.7 percent in 2016. Cincinnati averaged 1.3 cars per household in 2016, compared to a national average of 1.8.
The development of a light rail
system has long been a goal for Cincinnati, with several proposals emerging over many decades. The city grew rapidly during its streetcar era
of the late 19th century and early 1900s. Public transit ridership has been in decline for several decades and bicycles and walking has accounted for a relatively small portion of all trips in the past. Like many other midwestern cities, however, bicycle use is growing fairly rapidly in the 2000s and 2010s.
In 1916 the Mayor and citizens voted to spend $6 million to build the Cincinnati Subway
. The subway was planned to be a 16-mile loop from Downtown to Norwood
to Oakley and back to the east side of Downtown. World War I
delayed the construction in 1920 and inflation raised the costs causing the Oakley portion never to be built. Mayor Seasongood who took office later on argued it would cost too much money to finish the system.
A system of public staircases known as the Steps of Cincinnati
guides pedestrians up and down the city's many hills. In addition to practical use linking hillside neighborhoods, the 400 stairways provide visitors scenic views of the Cincinnati area.

, US 52
, and US 127
. The Riverfront Transit Center
