Listed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1985, the Dayton-Lane Historic District represents the residential neighborhood of choice for Hamilton's prominent industrialists at the turn of the last century. The more than 200 structures represent a variety of architectural styles from the last quarter of the 19th century. The 1868 Titus Atlas of Butler County shows that the area contained within the district was only sparsely settled. Not until the 1870's through the 1890's, was there a major stimulus to the development of the district with many new industries relocating or being founded in Hamilton. These industries were attracted to an abundance of inexpensive land and water power. The Dayton Lane area, lying just east of the many new industries, provided a convenient location for founders and managers of these companies. With the influx of these wealthy industrialists, most of the prominent residences are found on Dayton Street.
