A Brief History of Mason
Revolutionary War veteran William Mason purchased just over 640 acres in 1803 in what is now the city of Mason. In the next decade, he platted 16 of those acres for a small town that he called Palmira. He decreed in his will that 40 more acres would be added to Palmira after his death and the town would be expanded. This happened according to plan; however, there was already a Palmyra in Ohio and the name was changed to Mason in 1835. The area remained a small farming town until the 1990s. It was officially incorporated as a city in 1971.
These days, Mason is an affluent suburb of Cincinnati. In 2003, it was ranked 7th in Money Magazine’s Top 50 Best Places to Live in the United States. CNN has also ranked Mason as one of the top 100 cities in which to live in both 2008 and 2011.
One of the world’s largest tennis facilities is located in Mason, called the Lindner Family Tennis Center. The prestigious Western & Southern Open is held there annually. Another attraction in town is the Kings Island amusement park, popular with residents and tourists alike. Famous faces of Mason include award-winning actor George Clooney, sports journalist Dan Patrick, and MLB pitcher T.J. Zeuch.
