1. Village of Glendale, 1855
Inscription.  Established in 1851 after the addition of the Cincinnati, Hamilton, and Dayton Railway, Glendale incorporated in 1855 as Ohio's first planned community and one of the nation's first planned villages. The original planning included forested greenbelts and parks, curvilinear streets meandering around established trees, large lots, and superior building standards. Glendale is designated as a National Historic Landmark community from the Department of Interior and a Certified Local Government through the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, all owed to Glendale's persistent adherence to the plan and faithful preservation of original infrastructure. Much of today's preserved infrastructure includes the original 59 pivotal buildings, curvilinear streets, tree canopy, stone gutters, gas streetlights, and railroad depot.
Erected 2003 by Ohio Bicentennial Commission, The Longaberger Company, Village of Glendale, and The Ohio Historical Society. (Marker Number 40-31.)
