Cincinnati was founded in 1788 by Mathias Denman, Colonel Robert Patterson and Israel Ludlow. The three bought 800 acres of land along Ohio River at the mouth of River Licking. They further divided their roles for the new project. Denman was to fund, Patterson to find settlers while Ludlow to survey the land to enable sales and establish a town. At first the city was named “Losantiville”. This name is made of four words from different languages. It means “The city opposite the mouth of Licking River”. “Ville” is French for city, “anti” is Greek for opposite, “os” is Latin for mouth and “L” is all that was involved with the Licking River.
