History of the Village

The single most compelling quality of Indian Hill is its Village atmosphere. With a population of approximately 6,087 people, it is technically a City but its life style over the years has remained constant. It is a residential community of dedicated citizens trying to preserve the country atmosphere and the gifts nature has bestowed upon it. Its verdant terrain has a magnetism that attracts citizens who are willing to do something about the quality of their "at home" existence. This state of mind is vestigial of the Village's earliest days. The 20.5 square miles, now known as Indian Hill, was first eyed by the Indian tribes of the Shawnee, Miami and Delaware. From their villages at Pickaway and Chillicothe, they came to hunt the wooded slopes and fish the clear streams. Some of the main thoroughfares of the Village follow the early Indian trails. In 1787, Major Benjamin Stites, a veteran of the Revolutionary War, was with a surveying party coming down the Ohio River, when he was impressed by the strategic value as well as the beauty of the area between the two Miami Rivers. He returned east and interested Judge John Symmes in its purchase. When Symmes bought close to a million acres from the United States Government, he sold 10,000 acres adjacent to the Ohio and Little Miami Rivers to Stites for $0.66 an acre. This parcel of land encompassed Indian Hill. Newtown was among the first settlements and it was not long before some of the families moved from that settlement up the hillside to make their homes.
