Old North Dayton, Dayton, Ohio


Old North Dayton, Dayton, Ohio
Old North Dayton, located north of downtown Dayton between the Great Miami and Mad Rivers, Ohio

Located northeast of downtown Dayton, Old North Dayton sits between the Great Miami and Mad rivers. Its main routes are Troy, Brandt, Valley, Stanley, Leo and Chapel Streets.

German immigrants were the first to settle in the neighborhood, then known as 'Texas' or 'Parma'. Around the turn of the century, Eastern European immigrants, predominately Poles, Hungarians, and Lithuanians, moved in as laborers and gave the neighborhoods its unique ethnic flavor represented by ethnic Roman Catholic churches, cultural festivals, social clubs, and an Eastern European specialty restaurant, the Amber Rose.

Points of interest in the neighborhoods include the Amber Rose, Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church (German), St Adalbert’s Catholic Church (Polish), St. Stephen’s Catholic Church (Hungarian), Holy Cross Catholic Church (Lithuanian), and the historic Kossuth Colony.

The neighborhood is home to the Stuart Patterson Park. Formerly known as Walters Grove, the park was renamed in honor of Stuart Patterson. Patterson, the nephew of John H. Patterson, died in a plane crash at nearby McCook Field. Stuart Patterson Park is home to the Francis Fitzsimmons Senior Citizens Center.

Ohio State Routes 201 (Valley and Brandt Streets) and 202 (Troy St.) provide access to downtown Dayton, Riverside, and Huber Heights. Ohio State Route 4 provides quick access to Interstate 75, Interstate 70, U.S. Route 35 and Interstate 675.
