Camp Washington is a cool neighborhood on the edge of the west side. it’s a neighborhood that used to be and still is very industrial, but some of the old factories are being converted into lofts. a hidden gem of Cincinnati is here, the Cincinnati Sign Museum.
back in the day, Camp Washington had so many meat packing and industrial factories that the neighborhood alone made up for a quarter of Cincinnati’s total earnings tax. Camp Washington also had a modest rail yard. as time went on (and with the construction of I-75 during the 60’s), many of the industrial companies left and the rail yard continued to take up more space in the neighborhood and grow. today only a few industries remain in Camp Washington, and the rail yard in the neighborhood is one of the largest in the nation.
