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.
“Millard Roger Jr.’s Mariemont: A Pictorial History of A Model Town is the perfect complement 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 F. Rogers Jr. and Karen Monzel Hughes have unlocked the past to help us prepare for the future.”
