The Gilbert - Sinton Historic District is an area in the southern part of Walnut Hills, a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. The district forms a triangle with an area of ​​just over 13 acres ( approximately 5 acres ). It is roughly bounded by the two smaller residential streets Morris Street and Sinton Avenue and Gilbert Avenue, which is shown here as both U.S. Route 22 and State Route 3 as much larger. The Morris Street not only forms the southern boundary of the historic district, but forms the northern boundary of the extended Eden Park.

The largest part of the district was created by a small group of suppliers who collaborated with each other in each case. Therefore, none of the today existing in the district building was built before 1880, and only a few buildings emerged after the turn of the 20th century. Furthermore, the architecture of the district is relatively homogeneous. Most of the buildings are large residences that were built for wealthy residents, and the architectural styles - primarily Queen Anne Style and Shingle Style - feature similar components and designs.

In the early years of its existence, the area offered to Gilbert and Sinton Avenue to its residents numerous amenities. As the public transport reached the district, was the first route along the Sinton Avenue Cincinnati and first cable tram line ran over the Gilbert Avenue. The city along this route grew rapidly, of which Gilbert - Sinton was not an exception. Even today, the effects of this early traffic lines in the district can be seen.

1983 Gilbert - Sinton was declared a historic district and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 87 of the 90 buildings within the boundaries of the district are regarded as contributing to its historical value. Among these are the Gilbert Row on Gilbert Avenue and a pair of buildings at the Morris Street, known under the name Madam Fredin 's Eden Park School and Neighboring Row House, taken independently in the National Register in 1982 and 1979 respectively.
