Lockland is a village in Hamilton County, Ohio, United States. The population was 3,449 at the 2010 census. Lockland is located in southwest Ohio, north of Cincinnati. Its population has somewhat declined since the latter part of the 20th century.
The birth of the town, and its name, are related to the first set of lock gates that one would have encountered heading north on the Miami and Erie Canal. The canal served as a major transportation route linking commerce from as far as New Orleans to New York City. Many people and industry were attracted to the western Ohio area by the idea of connecting Lake Erie to the Ohio River. Lockland provided an abundance of water power, having a 15-foot (4.6 m) difference in water tables. This allowed for a water mill which ground flour for local farmers. A large reservoir pond allowed boats to dock for repairs or layover.
