Glendale Development - Begins To Fill With Homes

By 1869 many of the lots on the original plat had been built upon. Many were “dignified and stately homes surrounded by ‘ample grounds and shrubbery.'” Titus’ 1869 Hamilton County atlas depicts the village’s winding streets dotted with large houses with long, winding drives, such as the residences of H. W. Hughes on Greenville Avenue and T. J. Haldeman on Laurel Avenue, proprietor of the Haldeman Paper Company in Lockland. Small, closely built dwellings lined North Troy, Greenville, Church and Washington Avenues. The land east of the railroad tracks and west of Congress Avenue lay largely open, even in 1884.
