Welcome to Westwood Historical!

The Westwood Historical Society invites you to be part of the celebration of Westwood's Sesquicentennial.  The Village of Westwood was incorporated, September 14, 1868. 
Westwood was eventually annexed by the City of Cincinnati in 1896, but retains many of the unique characteristics that made it (and still make it!) a desireable place to live and thrive. Take the time to discover some of the stories that shaped our community. You may even notice how modern and contemporary many of those stories seem today!
Check out the online calendar for events and programs.  Contact us if you would like to help or if you have stories or photos you wish to share!
