Symmes Township is located in what was originally the Symmes Purchase. The township was incorporated by an act of the General Assembly on January 19, 1822. However, its year of establishment is usually given as 1824, as seen in the township’s previous logo. In 1853, the Little Miami Railroad was completed, connecting the township to Cincinnati. Symmes Township is conveniently situated between Indian Hill, Loveland, Sycamore Township and Montgomery. It offers an extensive park system, with easy access to walking trails, the Loveland Bike Trail, shopping, restuarants, and highways.
