Incorporated in 1910, Fort Mitchell is named after General Ormsby M. Mitchel, a mathematics and astronomy professor at Cincinnati College (now the University of Cincinnati). Reincorporated as a city in 1966, Fort Mitchell has become a thriving suburb located in Northern Kentucky, just south of the Ohio River.
Fort Mitchell describes itself as a quaint small town and a bedroom community for the Greater Cincinnati area. Located along Interstate-71/75, Fort Mitchell provides easy access to some of the best shopping, entertainment, and dining in the area. Only minutes from Downtown Cincinnati and Newport on the Levee, residents enjoy the best of suburban living and urban lifestyle.

Iris Road Park and Crescent Park are smaller neighborhood parks providing basketball courts and playgrounds. Fort Mitchell is also home to the Vent Haven Museum, the world's only museum dedicated to ventriloquism.
