Founded in 1904, the Village of Indian Hill in Ohio was meant to be an agricultural town, but it had such natural beauty that the place soon became a vacation town for the nearby metropolis of Cincinnati. And so, what started as a modest farming community is now a rich American town with an average income of over $330,000.
The only remnants of agriculture in Indian Hill is the landscaping done to multi-million dollar estates. The average house in this Ohio town costs more than $1 million, and if you’re looking for something with more than three bedrooms, prepare to shell out over $5 million.
