A spirit of community drives the city of Fort Wright
, whose roughly 6,000 residents enjoy civic amenities that include neighborhood watch programs, highly engaged fire and police forces, award-winning schools and immaculate public spaces.
In addition to providing affordable event space, high-quality community organizations like the South Hills Civic Center
host family-friendly recreational activities and maintain an annual scholarship fund exclusive to Fort Wright families.
Fort Wright also enjoys a proud history as a Civil War fortification site built for the defense of Greater Cincinnati. The city is named for Union Army engineer Major General Horatio Gouverneur Wright, who is among those local heroes commemorated at the James A. Ramage Civil War Museum
