Cincinnati was settled in 1788. Germans were among the first settlers. Cincinnati was incorporated as a city in 1819. The city is located on the north bank of the Ohio River at the Ohio−Kentucky border, near Indiana. It is Ohio's third-largest city.

In the early 19th century, Cincinnati was an American boomtown in the heart of the country to rival the larger coastal cities in size and wealth. It is the first major American city founded after the American Revolution.

Cincinnati is home to two major sports teams, the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals. The University of Cincinnati traces its foundation to the Medical College of Ohio, which was founded in 1819.

Cincinnati is known for its large collection of historic architecture. Over-the-Rhine, a neighborhood just to the north of Downtown Cincinnati, boasts among the world's largest collections of Italianate architecture. Constructed mainly between 1850 and 1900, Over-the-Rhine was the center of life for German immigrants for many years, and is one of the largest historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
