Filled with a sense of place and rich history, East Price Hill is a welcoming community close to Cincinnati’s center. Looking out over the City, residents feel distinct but still part of something bigger. Businesses, restaurants, parks, churches, and cultural institutions are all walkable from your home, while the rest of the West Side and Downtown are only minutes away. Our residents enjoy their diverse cultures. An original population of mostly Germans and Irish is now joined by African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, and other ethnic groups. All are cared for by one another, and come together for the betterment of the community.
