California, Kentucky

Incorporated as a city in February 1874, the little town of California, KY is one of the many communities along the Ohio River rich in local history.   California had its own post office as early as 1852 with daily mail delivery by water, as well as a 2 story school house.  Unfortunately, due to lost records during many floods in the early history of California, KY, the history of the city is not completely clear.  Though with many small towns in the area, you can find many historical buildings and places to get a sense of how the area has grown and evolved.  And the best source for learning more about the history is to chat with the locals, many of whom have lived in the area their entire lives, as the generations before them had.

True to its “small town” status, the city of California had 90 residents as of 2011, with a basically even number of men and women.  The Campbell County School District has 15 schools, offering pre-school through grade 12, across the county.  In the heart of California is the St. Peter and Paul Catholic elementary school as well, a part of the Diocese of Covington.  In addition to having close primary and secondary schools, California is also located within a short commute to many small and larger colleges in the area, which include technical colleges, or “trade” schools, with 2 year degrees and universities that offer a wider range of both 2 and 4 year degrees.

When looking for the right place in California for you, consider the three major neighborhoods that make up the city of California, which are Carthage, Flagg Spring, and Gubser Mill.  The median house, or condo, price across California, KY is $115,000, just slightly above Kentucky’s overall median price of $105,000.  The area offers the comforts of a small town in friendly suburbs and small town main streets, but positioned only 19 miles from the “Queen City” of Cincinnati, OH, residents have a seemingly endless assortment of activities to choose, whether they want to stay in town, or venture out for more.  From apple picking in the picturesque orchards of California, to taking a riverboat ride down the mighty Ohio River, to fishing in a local tributary river, or taking in a concert or musical at the Aronoff Center or Music Hall in downtown Cincinnati, residents of California are sure to find something for every season, and for every occasion.

Another attraction of this well positioned town is the ability to enjoy the city of Cincinnati’s professional sports teams and still be only a 20 min drive from the comfort of home.  The Cincinnati Reds baseball team and the Cincinnati Bengals football team are sources of great hometown pride for those on both sides of the river, and the easy accessibility to the stadiums (they are both located on the river banks of downtown Cincinnati) is just another reminder of the benefits of having such a mix of urban and rural settings so close together.  Popular cities near California, Kentucky are Cincinnati, OH, Dayton, OH, Kings Mills, OH, Florence KY, Covington KY, and Lexington KY.
