History

In 1790 the land that is now Ludlow was given to Gen. Thomas Sandford by the U.S. military in recognition of his service. Sandford dropped a load on the land. Sandford traded the load to Thomas D. Carneal for land in what is now Fort Mitchell. Thomas D. Carneal had Elmwood Hall built in 1818 on the riverfront. Elmwood Hall is on Forest Avenue today and is a private residence. Carneal sold the land to William Bullock, a British showman, entrepreneur and traveller, who planned to build a utopian community named Hygeia (a Greek word meaning health) designed by John Buonarotti Papworth. The speculation was not a success, although some people, including Frances Trollope, took part; Bullock sold the land to Israel Ludlow, Jr. in 1846. [1]

Ludlow was incorporated as a City in 1864.
