This last weekend my wife and I went up to the Cincinnati, Ohio area just exploring. One of the things that we found was the village of Glendale. Glendale is in Hamilton County and is a suburb of Cincinnati. The village was incorporated in 1858 and was the first planned community in Ohio and one of the first in the nation. It's streets, parks etc were laid out before development started. The village is 1.7 square miles and has a population of 2,200. It is also a designated National Historic District which consists of 439 buildings. There is a brick railroad stationA(see bottom photo) which is also a museum. The Victorian homes are mainly restored (photo) and are in remarkable condition. The black squirrel is the village's symbol. Thee are 25 fiberglass statues (like in photo) around town. There are village festivals and at times there are period dressed guided tours of the village.
