Highpoint (also known as High Point) is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Sycamore Township, Hamilton County, Ohio, United States, located about 20 miles north of Cincinnati, Ohio. As of the 2010 census, its population was 1,503.[2] Highpoint was founded in the 19th century. It was named Highpoint because, at least at one time, it was the highest point in Hamilton County,[citation needed] a distinction now held by the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill.

While the Tri County Mall and shopping area is nine miles west, Highpoint is sometimes called the real tri county because the three counties; Hamilton, Butler and Warren all meet right there.
