REES E. PRICE
Rees E. Price, the son of a Welsh merchant and the man for whom Price Hill is named,
invested in land west of the Mill Creek, where he built a brickyard and a sawmill

whom Matson Place is named. Their sons, John and William Price, built the Incline
Plane in 1874.
By the time Rees Price died in 1877, Price Hill had become a thriving community.

as Cincinnati’s most popular and distinctive suburb. Today, Rees Price, the namesake
of Price Hill, is also remembered in the name of Rees E. Price Academy, located on
