About Anderson Township
With a rich history dating back more than 150 years, the community enjoys strong roots that provide a firm base from which thriving local businesses, award-winning schools and state-of-the-art government services have evolved. Established in 1793, the area remained a close-knit rural community for decades. New development began in earnest in the 1950s after completion of the Beechmont Levee offered easy access to downtown Cincinnati, just 12 miles away.
Although it is one of the most popular and modern townships in the county today, development has been carefully managed to preserve the natural beauty and charm that attracted the area’s first residents more than a century ago and continues to attract newcomers today. Anderson truly offers its residents a “most livable” place to call home.
Good News is All Around Us
I love living in Anderson Township and believe that my family, friends, and neighbors do too. One of the greatest things about our area is the collective sense of community, and pride in where we live. I grew up in a relatively small town in Iowa, and Anderson Township reminds me of all that was good about that "small town" feel. After trying to find a hobby in 2011, I decided to create a site that highlighted the people and places that make this such a great place to live. This is the fourth redesign of the site, and I hope you enjoy the contents.
I also encourage you to check out the Township Administration site, the parks web site, and the Anderson Area Chamber of commerce site as well. These are all great resources for existing residents and people new to the area.
If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact me directly!
