Sharonville :: History

The first settlers arrived in Sharon, as it was called originally, around 1788. Transportation was a major part of Sharonville's history: it was first a stopping point for stagecoaches between Cincinnati and Lebanon, then a stopping point along the Erie Canal in the 1820s, and in 1872, when the first railroad came through, Sharon's success became closely tied to that of the railroad. In 1876, Sharon became Sharonville to distinguish itself from a town in eastern Ohio. It was incorporated as a village in 1911 and as a city in 1962.

The Heritage Village Museum in Sharon Woods features a depiction of life in the region in the 19th Century.
