Camp Washington is a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Camp Washington is a city neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. It is located north of Queensgate, east of Fairmount, and west of Clifton and University Heights. The community is a crossing of 19th century homes and industrial space, some of which is being converted into loft apartments.
During the U.S.–Mexican War Camp Washington was an important military location, training five-thousand, five-hundred and thirty-six soldiers who went to war. Camp Washington was annexed to the City of Cincinnati in November, 1869.
This neighborhood is also the location of National Register buildings, including the Oesterlein Machine Company-Fashion Frocks, Inc. Complex and the old Cincinnati Workhouse (designed by Samuel Hannaford), which was destroyed and rebuilt to serve as a drug rehabilitation center. The neighborhood has been home to the award-winning Cincinnati chili parlor, Camp Washington Chili for more than 50 years.
