Facts for Renters
Loveland was desired early on for its picturesque hillsides, rich soil for farming and the nearby Little Miami River.
The city was initially settled in 1795 by Colonel Thomas Paxton. In 1848, the son-in-law of Paxton decided to buy 189 acres of land in Warren and Clermont counties. The entire sect of land was named Loveland after James Loveland, who ran a general store and a post office in the downtown part of the city.
The area became more popular after the development of the Little Miami Railroad, which helped settlers commute to and from Cincinnati.
The Little Miami River divided the counties of Clermont and Hamilton until a bridge was built in 1872. The river also caused major flooding in the region until a levee and channel were constructed.
Today, Loveland is known as a beautiful suburb that is far enough away from the city but close enough for an easy commute.
