Today’s visitor to Mariemont, Ohio, encounters what appears to be a community from another place and time, perhaps a country village in England’s Cotswold region. Tree-lined streets pass through neighborhoods lined with Tudor- and Georgian-style buildings. A stone church with a roof that dates from 1300 abuts an early settlement graveyard. This remarkable village is the masterpiece of the eminent town planner John Nolen (1869–1937) and the vision of philanthropist Mary M. Emery (1844–1927).

Located near Cincinnati, Mariemont was designed as a self-sufficient town, its inspiration derived from the English Garden City and concepts developed in the early twentieth century. In 2007, Mariemont earned National Historic Landmark status from the Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior. Today, it serves as a “National Exemplar” for twenty-first-century developers, including those of the New Urbanist movement.

Mariemont: A Pictorial History of a Model Town presents both archival photographs that trace the creation, construction, and growth of the town and contemporary views by noted Cincinnati photographer Robert Flischel. Photographs from the rich collection of the Mariemont Preservation Foundation, including rare images made of the area in the 1870s–80s and by John Nolen and Nancy Ford Cones in the 1920s, mark this important experiment in architecture and urban design.

About the Author:

Millard F. Rogers, Jr. is the director emeritus of the Cincinnati Art Museum and a longtime resident of Mariemont. His publications include Rich in Good Works: Mary M. Emery of Cincinnati and John Nolen and Mariemont: Building a New Town in Ohio. 

Karen Monzel Hughes is an associate dean in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning and associate professor of design at the University of Cincinnati. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Chris Award at the Columbus International Film and Video Festival.

Review:

 “Millard Roger Jr.’s Mariemont: A Pictorial History of A Model Town is the perfect compliment to his definitive text of the “National Exemplar,” John Nolen and Mariemont: Building a New Town in Ohio. Historic photos and artistic renderings engage the reader and reveal how business acumen and utopian ideals merged to create a signature planned community. Creating mixed use, pedestrian oriented communities that harmonize the natural and built environment is now national policy, and Millard Rogers  Jr. and Karen Monzel Hughes have unlocked the past to help us prepare for the future.”
― Bruce Stephenson, author of Visions of Eden: Environmentalism, Urban Planning and City Building in St. Petersburg, Florida, 1900–1995
