Much of the land that is now known as Southgate was owned by the Shaler family, and the area remained a largely agricultural area until 1907 when around twenty-five families made their way into the beautiful woods near the Ohio River to make a new life. The city was quickly incorporated and named Southgate, since many of the residents' forefathers were the keepers of the south gate at London.
Today, the city boasts a low amount of crime and a high quality of life that many residents enjoy. The word is out on this great city as well, as Southgate has seen a 9.5 increase in population from 2000 to 2010, according to City-Data.
