Mason sits at the core of the Cincinnati-Dayton Metropolitan Region, the 14th largest urban area in the nation. In 2013, Mason was ranked seventh in Money Magazine's 2013 Top 50 Best Places to live in the United States.

In 1815, he platted 16 lots on this land and named the village "Palmira." In 1832, two years after the death of William Mason and according to his will, more than 40 additional lots were platted on the north, south, and west of Palmira. 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. It had been listed as Kirkwood, possibly an error because the postmaster at the time was William Kirkwood. When village officials were informed that there was another Palmyra in Ohio, the name was officially changed to "Mason."
