Delhi & Sayler Park
Delhi Township is a suburban community with a population of 29,510 (2010 U.S. Census) located in Southwest Ohio’s Hamilton County. Delhi was established in 1789 and was a rural community until just after World War II. The Township’s motto, “The Floral Paradise of Ohio”, dates from this earlier era when the Township’s landscape was dotted with greenhouses. At one time these greenhouses were a major source of the nation’s carnation stock. Since World War II Delhi has experienced a transformation from a pastoral, agricultural community into a quiet bedroom community that emphasizes neighborhood and family.
Delhi Township is a home-rule township whose policy-making authority is vested in an elected three-member Board of Trustees. The Township Fiscal Officer is also an elected official. The Trustees and the Fiscal Officer serve four year staggered terms with elections held in November of the odd-numbered years.

fficially established in 1911, Sayler Park is located on the western edge of Cincinnati, Ohio near the banks of the Ohio River in Hamilton County. Just 1 mile in length and 2 miles wide, we are small but considered “Cincinnati’s Western Gateway”. Known for it’s charming, sleepy smalltown feel, Sayler Park is a quaint village just 15 minutes from downtown Cincinnati.
The historic homes of Sayler Park tend to be Victorian in Italianate, Queen Anne, and Vernacular styles. Also available are Arts and Crafts bungalows and foursquares, as well as Tudor Revival homes. Sayler Park offers an impressive inventory of architecturally significant homes at very attractive prices; the majority of homes range from 1880 to 1925. Large lot sizes and lots of green-space allow homeowners to enjoy the natural setting of the village.
Sayler Park’s name hints to its park-like setting. The streets are lined with beautiful, mature trees providing shade in the summer and beautiful color in the fall. We are home to five city parks as well as the 63-acre park, Fernbank Park, which meanders along the Ohio River for more than a mile.
Sayler Park is recognized as a Tree City USA
Originally a rivertown, the village treasurers both its historical and architectural heritage.
Our Thornton Triangle (at the intersection of Gracely Dr & Thornton Ave) is the smallest park in the City of Cincinnati. In addition to that bit of tiny trivia, in this same park stands the J. Fitzhugh Thornton Memorial. The statue (a Cincinnati Historic Landmark), locally called “Tecumseh” is also known as the Sayler Park Indian, the Fernbank Indian and its catalog name, Indian Chief No. 53. Just like the saga of the American Indian, this effigy has an unusual history which evokes a paradox of civic pride in Sayler Park’s Indian history. For the full story click here
Sayler Park is also home to two very historically significant and well preserved Adena period Indian mounds. The Short Woods Mound, now on the edge of the Fernbank golf course measures 38 feet high by 150 feet wide. It has been excavated and radiocarbon dated to 800 BCE. Another mound from that era known as the Story Mound is on the property of Sayler Park Elementary. Both mounds were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the mid 1970’s.
