Geography[edit]

Cincinnati is in the Ozarks on the southern edge of the Springfield Plateau near the Boston Mountains.

Cincinnati Creek flows past the east side of the community.[3]

History[edit]

In the early years before 1857, Cincinnati was first known as Buzzard Roost, then Silvia. This early settlement was such a thriving center of commerce that people came from Fayetteville for supplies.[4]

Three of Cincinnati's inhabitants died during the 2010 New Year's Eve tornado outbreak. Another died four days later from injuries sustained in the tornado.[5]
