Mount Washington is a neighborhood on the east side of Cincinnati, Ohio. It is located about ten minutes east of Downtown via Columbia Parkway and Beechmont Avenue; or a slightly longer drive via Riverside Drive (formerly Eastern Avenue) and Kellogg Avenue, to Salem Avenue and up Sutton Avenue or Beacon Street. As one of Cincinnati’s 52 neighborhoods, Mount Washington lies within the city corporation limits, and borders the Cincinnati neighborhoods of California, Linwood, and the East End, as well as unincorporated Anderson Township, Ohio.
Mount Washington contains historic homes and distinctive architecture. Housing stock in the neighborhood is diverse, with values ranging from modest bungalows to million dollar estates. Wilaray Terrace, Honeysuckle Lane, and Honeysuckle Drive are lined with architect-designed homes, built from the 1920s to early 1960s. Other streets, such as Adena Trail, contain homes built throughout the later twentieth century. The Lower Salem area, located along Salem Avenue between Wayside and Kellogg Avenues, contains sprawling estates and large homes.Return to Blog
