Sedamsville Village Historic District

On July 3rd, 2012, the Sedamsville Village Historic District has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. This unique district includes a wonderful collection of buildings built c. 1835 to 1928, surrounded by protected greenspace. It takes in 175 properties along Steiner Avenue, Delhi Avenue, Sedam Street, Fairbanks Avenue and Edwin Street.

The Register listing is both a great honor and a revitalization tool: It makes federal and state tax incentives available for the renovation of historic structures such as Benjamin Harrison School and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church and School. CPA prepared the Register nomination with the strong support of the Sedamsville Civic Association.

The Sedamsville Villag edistrict is now the City’s 30th National Register district and the fifth on the West Side.  Cincinnati has more National Register listings and National Historic Landmarks than any city in Ohio.  CPA is proud that so many of our great historic resources that so many achieved this honor.
