Introduction to Silverton, Ohio

Silverton, Ohio, in Hamilton county, is 3 miles NE of Cincinnati, Ohio. The city has a population of 5,178.

Silverton History

The community of Silverton traces its beginnings to land grants made in the post-Revolutionary War era. David Mosner established a general store in 1809, and for the next few decades, the region was referred to as "Mosner" or "Enterprise". A post office was established in 1861, and the community came to be formally known as Mosner. The Lebanon & Northern Railroad arrived in 1883, which led to significant development of the community. Soon after, the first subdivision was platted by Seth Haines and Robert Cresap. According to records, the town was named "Silverton" in honor of Elizabeth Silver Haines. It was incorporated in 1884, and attained the status of a city in 1961. The 1960s witnessed more change as a large number of African-American families settled in the area transforming Silverton into a diverse, integrated city.
