The Village was incorporated on July 12, 1941. Mariemont has approximately 3,000 residents.
Mariemont is distinguished from similar communities by a unique electoral process called Town Meeting. Town Meeting is a unique nonpartisan system through which nominations for Village offices are made. To be a part of Town Meeting, you need only be a resident of voting age. Complete with the colorful and historically dressed Town Crier, Mariemont Town Meeting has meetings whenever appropriate, including a state of the Village meeting annually.
