Dayton View Triangle Apartments for Rent
Dayton is the sixth-largest city in Ohio and the county seat of Montgomery County, just north of the Cincinnati metro area. The city, with a population of 841,502, hosts significant industrial and aerospace activity. Healthcare and insurance industries also figure into the economy here.
Dayton has a number of distinctive neighborhoods, including Dayton View Triangle. This quiet neighborhood is well known for its tree-lined streets, dotted with large homes in a mix of architectural styles and rich with details such as unique front doorways, elaborate staircases, leaded glass and hardwood floors that reflect craftsmanship not seen today. Dayton View is also well known for its richness of socioeconomic and cultural diversity.
The neighborhood is friendly and enjoys get-togethers such as TriangleFest, summer concerts, an annual neighborhood garage sale, children’s Halloween parties and a biennial home tour. Residents are active in community efforts, and have been successful with many projects such as a recycling effort that directly led to the initiation of curbside recycling in the City of Dayton. Residents formed their own tax-assessment district in order to install period streetlights. Concern about neighborhood children led a group of neighbors to devise a traffic plan, which resulted in the installation of street traffic impeders. Each of these projects took more than five years to implement.
The Triangle has close ties with Beth Abraham Synagogue, Good Samaritan Hospital and Omega Baptist Church, which has recently purchased the Olmstead-designed campus that housed the United Theological Seminary for 80 years. This park-like area is a neighborhood gathering place, with its 35 acres encircled by a walking/ jogging path with exercise stations.
Within the Dayton View Triangle is the Dayton View Historic District, a 680-acre portion of the city developed in the late-19th century consisting of 219 structures located within Broadway, Harvard Boulevard, Superior and Salem Avenues. Dayton View was historically one of Dayton’s most prominent neighborhoods. It was listed as a historic district in 1984.
The farmhouse of James Oliver Arnold, circa 1832, still stands at the northwest corner of Superior and Arnold. The original portion of the farmhouse dates to 1832. Architectural styles in this area include Victorian, Jacobean, American Foursquare and Prairie School, and date from the late 1880s through the 1930s.
