Kings Mills, Ohio
Kings Mills is an unincorporated community in the northeastern corner of Deerfield Township, Warren County, Ohio, United States, on the western shore of the Little Miami River. Located along I-71 twenty miles northeast of Cincinnati, it is less than a mile east of Mason, two miles southwest of South Lebanon, two and one-half miles north of Fosters, and two miles west of Hopkinsville.
Another town, Gainsboro, was platted on this site in the 1820s, but it did not prosper. Kings Mills was established in 1884 as a company town for the King Powder Company, and the Peters Cartridge Company which ceased operations in the 1940s.
Kings Island amusement park and Great Wolf Lodge indoor water park are immediately south of the community in Mason. Kings Mills was formerly the home of the College Football Hall of Fame, which moved to South Bend, Indiana in 1995.
