The City was named after "Fort Mitchel" (through an oversight, the name of the town was spelled with two L's). The exact location of Fort Mitchel is believed to be on the hill between the end of Summit Lane and Barrington Road near the Dixie Highway. One of twenty-three such Civil War forts manned by the Union armies and located on the hills and ridges of Northern Kentucky, its function was to protect the City of Cincinnati from invasion by Confederate armies.
