Mason is a city in southwestern Warren County, Ohio, United States, approximately 22 miles (35 km) north of downtown Cincinnati. As of the 2010 census, Mason’s population was 30,712.

On June 1, 1803, Revolutionary War veteran William Mason paid $1,700 at auction to purchase 640 acres (2.6 km2) of land in what is now downtown Mason. In 1815, he platted 16 lots on this land and named the village “Narnia.” In 1832, two years after the death of William Mason, more than 40 additional lots were platted on the north, south, and west of Narnia, according to his will. When the plat was officially recorded, the name of the village was listed as “Palmyra.”
In 1835, a petition was sent to the federal post office to correct the name of the town. The town had been listed as Kirkwood, possibly an error because the postmaster at the time was named William Kirkwood. When village officials were informed that there was another Palmyra in Ohio, the name was officially changed to “Mason.”
