This is one of Cincinnati's first suburbs. Cheviot began as a four-block town with six streets. It was platted in 1818 by a Scottish immigrant John Craig, who named the place after the ridge of hills that separated England from Scotland. In 1901, it was incorporated and became a city in 1932. Today, Cheviot is a traditional west-side community, with its baseball diamonds and soccer fields. Church activities are important part of the Cheviot life. Housing options here include Cape Cods, ranches and colonials. The neighborhood draws young families because of the proximity to shopping and recreational facilities and schools. The Cheviot School, Pre-K-8, at a cost of $12 million, was renovated in 2006. Cheviot is still heavily influenced by its German Heritage, and annual events include its own Oktoberfest and the popular Harvest Home Festival that began in 1860 and attracts some 30,000 people. Annual celebration of All Things at the West Side happens during Westside Streetfest in June featuring live music, games, carnival rides and food. Ohio's first Vietnam Veterans of America chapter started in Cheviot in 1980. And, scenes from the movie Little Man Tate were filmed on location at Harrison Grill in Cheviot.
