History

In 1818 a Scottish immigrant named John Craig purchased a half section of 320 acres (1.3 km2) of Green Township from Elias Boudinot. He built an inn and tavern on the Harrison Pike. In 1818 Craig laid out a village which he named after the Cheviot Hills in southern Scotland. He sold lots and growth began.

The town was incorporated in 1901. Originally a farming community, today Cheviot is a residential suburb of Cincinnati.

Culture

The city of Cheviot is home to much of the same German-American and other ethnic cultures that inhabit the surrounding Cincinnati area.[8] The city is known locally (and regionally) for its annual Harvest Home Fair. Since about 1855, the fair has been held each year on the weekend after Labor Day. The city incorporated the West Fest Street Festival in 2002, which has steadily grown in popularity. The annual event features local food, various booths/activities, children's rides, and live music. Cheviot is often recognized by locals as "The Heart of The West Side" (of Cincinnati) because of its urban yet small-town, friendly culture. The city features a concentrated variety of small businesses and pubs along its main thoroughfares. The city is part of the Cincinnati Public School district.
