A History Lover's Guide to Cincinnati (History & Guide) (Paperback)
A tour of the Queen City's rich heritage
One of the oldest cities in the Midwest, Cincinnati has history in its bones. In the 1800s, the city was often styled the "Paris of America" due in part to ambitious architectural projects like the Music Hall, Cincinnatian Hotel, and city hall. Many of these historical structures still exist. The city also has sundry links to American presidents, whose stories can still be seen if you know where to look. Thriving destinations like Over the Rhine and Findlay Market provide glimpses of Cincinnati as it once was and how it is today.
Offering something for native and visitor alike, author Robert Schrage leads a trip through the past and present of one of the nation's most historic cities.
