Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007, Mariemont is a vibrant community and one of the first planned developments in the United States. It was founded in 1920 by Mary Emery and incorporated in 1941. John Nolen designed the town as one that could be walked by the residents although the streetcar to downtown and Milford ran two blocks from the town center. Single family homes offering unique architecture are framed by tree-lined streets and beautiful landscaping. Mariemont Village Square is a favorite of neighbors, locals and out-of-state residents. Residents can enjoy a swim club, tennis courts, garden club and numerous sporting activities. Neighboring villages include Terrace Park, Indian Hill, Fairfax and Columbia Township.
