Our Hosting City

Resting along the banks of the Ohio River, Cincinnati’s vibrant region spans portions of three states. It is within a one day’s drive of two-thirds of the United States. Settled in 1788 when Mathias Denman, Colonel Robert Patterson, and Israel Ludlow landed at a spot at the northern bank of the Ohio opposite the mouth of the Licking and decided to settle there. The original surveyor, John Filson, named the settlement Losantiville; but in 1790, Arthur St. Clair, the governor of the Northwest Territory, changed the name to Cincinnati in honor of the Society of the Cincinnati, made up of Revolutionary War veterans, of which he was a member. Cincinnati is known for its historic architecture. In the late 1800s, Cincinnati was commonly referred to as “Paris of America,” due mainly to such ambitious architectural projects. It was also the birthplace of William Howard Taft, the 27th President of the United States.
