Mariemont (pronounced // MERR-ee-mont) is a planned community village in Hamilton County, Ohio, United States. It includes two overlapping historic districts, Village of Mariemont and Mariemont Historic District. Named for its founder, Mary Emery, Mariemont exhibits English architecture from Norman to classic Georgian style. Several parks exist in the village, including the Concourse on Miami Bluff Drive, and Dogwood Park that offers carillon concerts on Sundays throughout the summer months. The village square serves as the community center with red brick Tudor buildings, including the Mariemont Inn and Mariemont Barber Shop. Mariemont has one of the few elected town criers remaining in North America. The current mayor of the Village is Dan Policastro. In 2007, the Village of Mariemont was designated a National Historic Landmark. The population was 3,403 at the 2010 census.
Mariemont is located at .
There is archeological evidence of a Native American settlement in the area that is now Mariemont, but it was abandoned sometime before Europeans settled in the area in 1786. There is a pioneer cemetery adjacent to the Mariemont Community Church.
Mariemont was founded by Mary Emery and planned by John Nolen and 25 leading American architects. Emery and other dignitaries broke ground on April 23, 1923. Emery had spent around seven million dollars of her own money to purchase the land that would become Mariemont. Her vision was of a planned community reminiscent of an English garden citythat would welcome people of differing economic backgrounds, with a mix of single-family homes and affordable low-rise apartments.
However, the dream of welcoming all classes was not achieved in the end. Construction costs drove rents up considerably higher than those in the city that Emery had hoped to help others escape. Like other planned communities founded before 1960, Mariemont was originally an exclusively white community.
