Founded January 2, 1790
The county is named for the first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander
The first settlers came down the Ohio River in 1788, and established the towns of Losantiville (later Cincinnati)
Hamilton County was organized in 1790, as the second county in the Northwest Territory. Its area then included
about one eighth of Ohio, and had about 2,000 inhabitants (not including the few remaining Native Americans).
Rapid growth occurred during the 1830s and 1840s as the area attracted many German and Irish immigrants. [source: wikipedia]
