Ft. Thomas

The very name Fort Thomas seems to conjure history. Built on the site of an 1890 U.S. Army post, the town was named for Brigadier General George H. Thomas, a key Civil War leader.  
Located in northeastern Campbell County and easily accessible from Cincinnati via I-471, today’s Fort Thomas is alive with sports and activities for youth, adults and seniors alike. Residents enjoy convenient access to top-rated schools, independent shops and restaurants as well as the St. Elizabeth Healthcare facilities on Grand Avenue.  
Fort Thomas Independent Schools are consistently ranked among the best in the state. Highlands High School is annually ranked among the top high schools in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
