Folks Used To Flock To This Tiny Ohio Town As A Refuge From The Cholera Epidemic
Ohio has a fascinating history and reputation that precedes it. While Ohio is best known as The Birthplace of Presidents and its role in the Underground Railroad, there’s much more to discover in the Buckeye State. For instance, the small town of Mt. Healthy is home to just under 7,000 residents and is, by all appearances, a sleepy inner-ring suburb of Cincinnati. But it wasn’t always that way; when the cholera epidemic struck Ohio in 1849, Mt. Healthy became a refuge and haven for the healthy.
