Crestview is a home rule-class city in Campbell County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 475 at the 2010 census.
The city of Crestview was founded as Vet Village in 1948 by veterans of World War II. The first mayor, William Toner, was a veteran who – along with Michael Guidugli, Harold Shingshang, Edward Storer and Robert Munninghoff – broke ground as the first residents of the tiny city. Located less than 10 miles (16 km) from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio., this small piece of farmland quickly became a suburb for these young soldiers and their families. In 1950, the residents decide to rename the city through a contest, and the name Crestview was selected.
