About Anderson Township

One of the twelve townships of Hamilton County, Anderson Township is located in the southeastern part of the county and less than 15 minutes from downtown. The township has been named one of the Cincinnati area’s most desirable neighborhoods to live. The 2000 census found 43,857 people in the township, making it one of the most populous townships in the state of Ohio. Anderson Township is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family!

History

The first Anderson Township residents came in 1788, when Benjamin Stites settled at the mouth of the Little Miami River. A historical marker commemorates this location at the end of Elstun Road in Anderson.

It was important in it early days as the site of Flinn’s Ford, the southern-most crossing of the Little Miami River.

Anderson was the fifth township organized in Hamilton County in 1793. Being east of the Little Miami River, it was part of the Virginia Military District. Newtown, then called Mercersburg, was first settled in 1792. In 2004, the township became home to the second largest Kroger store in the world, the largest being in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In 1976, a chain of parks called the Anderson Park District was started in the township.

About our Site

We love living in Anderson Township and believe that our friends and neighbors do too.  We decided to see if there was a site that highlighted the people and places that make this such a great place to live.  We couldn’t find anything exactly like this, so we decided to set it up and give it a try!  We encourage you to check out the other township sites, the parks web sites 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 requests for our site, please feel free to contact us directly!
