North Bend was founded in 1789. It was platted as Symmes City but ultimately never took that name.[5] Instead, it was incorporated as the village of North Bend in 1845.[6] It is named for its location, where the Ohio River meanders to the north.[7]

President Benjamin Harrison was born in North Bend. It was the home of his grandfather, President William Henry Harrison. North Bend is the location of the grave of John Cleves Symmes at Congress Green Cemetery and of the William Henry Harrison Tomb State Memorial, the grave of William Henry Harrison.[8] John Scott Harrison, the only man in U.S. history to be the son of a president and the father of a president, was born in North Bend and is buried in his father's vault in North Bend. Eliza Hendricks, wife of U.S. Vice President Thomas A. Hendricks, also was born in North Bend.

On May 5, 1865, North Bend was the site of an early hold-up of a railway train.[9]
