Montgomery is a city in Hamilton County, Ohio, United States settled in 1796. The town was a coach stop on the Cincinnati-Zanesville Road, later known as the Montgomery Pike with an Inn, two taverns, a grist mill and a carding mill to process its agricultural products. It would remain a rather sleepy hamlet until the 1960s when it would become an affluent bedroom community for people working in the City of Cincinnati.[3] To this day it retains its historic downtown with many other 19th century houses scattered throughout the community. It is currently accessed from exit 15 off Interstate 71, exit 50 off Interstate 275 and is the eastern terminus of the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway about five miles northeast of the Cincinnati city line. The population was 10,163 at the 2000 census.
