Anderson Township was founded in 1793 as the 5th township in Hamilton County. Its boundaries were originally set by the Ohio and Little Miami Rivers. Settlements began developing along the Little Miami River, including Newtown, because the landscape was more easily inhabited than the wooded and hilly areas nearby.
Throughout the 19th century, many wooded areas were harvested for fuel. As the forests were cleared, farming outposts began to develop, including Cherry Grove, Forestville, Fruit Hill, and Sweetwine. Anderson Twp remained mostly agricultural until the rapid growth of the suburbs after World War II. This rapid growth was aided by the construction of the Beechmont Levee, which provided a more direct route to downtown Cincinnati. Later, increased access to the Greater Cincinnati area was provided by the construction of I-275 and I-471.
With 44,000 residents, Anderson Township ranks 4th among Hamilton County’s 49 jurisdictions in population. According to MLS data, homes for sale in 2019 closed at a median price of $260,000. Home size, quality, and acreage vary widely and as a result, home prices range from below $100,000 to over $3 million. Although some regions of Anderson Twp have been fully suburbanized, many areas maintain the original wooded and hilly terrain – some with fantastic river views.
