 Constance was founded around [[1800]] when George Anderson began operation a [[Anderson Ferry|ferry]] to western Cincinnati. ​ The Dry Creek-Mitchellsville Turnpike (KY Route 20) to the west connected the town with the interior of the county. ​ During the early 1800's large numbers of immigrants from Baden and Wurttenberg in southwestern Germany made their way to Constance, no doubt because the [[Ohio River|river]],​ with its steep, forested hills on either side, reminded them of their homeland in the Rhine Valley. ​ The name "​Constance,"​ which was chosen for the post office in [[1853]], is taken from a town on the Rhine. ​ As years passed they were joined by German families from Cincinnati. Constance was founded around [[1800]] when George Anderson began operation a [[Anderson Ferry|ferry]] to western Cincinnati. ​ The Dry Creek-Mitchellsville Turnpike (KY Route 20) to the west connected the town with the interior of the county. ​ During the early 1800's large numbers of immigrants from Baden and Wurttenberg in southwestern Germany made their way to Constance, no doubt because the [[Ohio River|river]],​ with its steep, forested hills on either side, reminded them of their homeland in the Rhine Valley. ​ The name "​Constance,"​ which was chosen for the post office in [[1853]], is taken from a town on the Rhine. ​ As years passed they were joined by German families from Cincinnati.
