Miamiville is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in western Miami Township, Clermont County, Ohio, United States, along the Little Miami River.[1] As of the 2010 census it had a population of 242.[2] Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 45147.[3]

History[edit]

Miamiville was laid out in 1849, and named for the nearby Little Miami River.[4] A post office called Miamiville has been in operation since 1848.[5]

Miamiville's low profile as an unincorporated community was a benefit during the Great Depression, when Prohibition outlawed alcohol consumption in the United States. The Miami Boat Club operated as a speakeasy during the 1920s and 1930s.[6]
