History

Hyde Park was established in 1892 by several prominent Cincinnati businessmen who wanted to create a community exclusively for Cincinnati's wealthy.[1] The neighborhood is named after New York's fashionable Hyde Park area, which the men wanted to duplicate.[1] The men bought up all the land in the area, and then shaped their community by closely monitoring prospective residents and selling only to those they deemed suitable. Hyde Park was annexed by the City of Cincinnati in November, 1903.[4][5]

In 2010, Forbes named Hyde Park one of "America's Best Neighborhoods", citing the education levels of its residents and its high concentration of shops and restaurants.[6]

Hyde Park School, located at 3401 Edwards Road, is also another landmark of the community that identifies Hyde Park. Hyde Park School closed and served as Temporary Swing Space by Cincinnati Public Schools for Kilgour Elementary and Mt. Washington Elementary Schools. Mount Washingston School is used the Hyde Park School building until their new building was completed. The school currently houses the Cincinnati Gifted Academy as well as classrooms for grades K through 2.[7]
