geographical name(Concise Encyclopedia)
City (pop., 2000: 331,285), Ohio, U.S. Situated on the Ohio River across from Kentucky, it was first settled in 1788; the area was renamed in 1790 to honour the Society of the Cincinnati. A river port after 1811, it grew in importance with the opening of the Miami and Erie Canal in 1832. Its manufactures include transportation equipment and building materials, and it is a major inland coal port. A cultural centre, it has an orchestra, opera and ballet companies, and several notable museums. It is the seat of the University of Cincinnati (1819), the birthplace of William Howard Taft (now a national historical site), and the site of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, where she lived briefly and frequently visited her family during her tenure in the city (1832–50).
