  History of North Avondale


  North Avondale Brochure




North Avondale has been described as “a beautiful piece of heaven in the middle of the city… a place where you know your neighbors and care about each other.”

Foremost among North Avondale’s attributes are the large, old single family homes with distinguished architectural style, large lots, and stately trees.

Equally important are the people who live in North Avondale.  They are highly diverse racially, socially and economically, but with the common bond of wanting to make the neighborhood and the city in which they live a better place.

North Avondale is also conveniently located in the heart of Cincinnati, minutes from downtown, shopping, schools, religious and cultural institutions.

Message from the NANA President

Dear neighbors,

  Thank you for the opportunity to serve as NANA's President. North Avondale has been my family's home for the past 7 years, and we have enjoyed being part of this neighborhood since day one. The friendly and diverse people, the civic passion and voluntarism, and of course, the beautiful architecture and gardens in our neighborhood are amazing and well worth working hard for to preserve and improve.

  NANA held the 53rd annual meeting on May 18th at the Community Friends Meetinghouse. A new board was elected, so please join me in thanking the outgoing board members for their great service, Maura Wolf (President) and Myles Harper (1st Vice President). A special thanks to Maura, who has been NANA's exceptionally capable and passionate President for the past two years. She leaves large shoes to fill, but I am confident the new board will be strong and active, and as a team we will keep moving North Avondale forward. In addition to myself, the board will consist of Michael Caporale (1st Vice President), Marvin Masterson (2nd Vice President), Carolyn Gillman (3rd Vice President), Dana Winn (Corresponding Secretary), Nicole Patitucci (Recording Secretary), and Tom Wright (Treasurer).

  Thank you also to our guest speakers at the meeting. Patricia Garry, Executive Director for the Community Development Corporations Association of Greater Cincinnati gave us insight into what Community Development Corporations (CDCs) can do for a neighborhood and ways her organization is supporting this. We also had a presentation by Ann Dougherty, Sustainability Director at Xavier on a Permaculture garden project a team of students at Xavier is developing. Thank you also to the Community Friends Meetinghouse for hosting our general meeting and to Valerie Williams with FiveStar Foodies for excellent catering of the event.

  Finally, I hope that the school year is wrapping up well, and that everyone is enjoying being outside with the warmer temperatures and the pools open again! Have a great summer!

Attention Neighborhood Renovators, Investors, and Developers:

  Consider becoming a North Avondale preferred renovator to purchase and renovate properties which we are obtaining from the National Community Stabilization Trust (NCST) through HURC, Homesteading Urban Redevelopment Corporation. These properties need total renovation from top to bottom and will only be sold, on an “as-is” basis, to preferred renovators, demonstrating financial capacity, ensuring they are brought up to the City of Cincinnati’s Building & Zoning Code Requirements, and agreeing to sell only to owner-occupied purchasers or, in the case of a multi-family structure, to a neighborhood participant with a proven track record for good property management. In the near future, we will have two multi-family structures available. 

If you are qualified and interested, please contact Maura Wolf via the NANA contact form on this site.
