History[edit]

This area was first settled in 1791 or 1792, when Capt. Jacob White, from Redstone (Brownsville), Pennsylvania settled and founded White's Station[2] in the extreme southeastern section of Springfield Township. White's Station, a small log blockhouse, was attacked by a party of Indians on the 19th of October, 1793.

Carthage had 148 inhabitants in the 1830 United States Census.[3]

Carthage was incorporated[4] as a village in 1868 and then annexed[5] into Cincinnati in 1911.
