As the settlers landed at what is now Broadway they realized they would not be getting any help anyone on the East Coast, because the Allegany Mountains were in the way, (there were no roads).

In 1930 a company from New York came to Cincinnati to see what this was all about. They conducted a study and their recommendation was to have a regional government. The only problem is we are dealing with three states, so a regional government was out of the question. However this cooperation continues today making Greater Cincinnati the safest area of the country to live in.
