PROGRAMS AT INDIAN HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY

We are planning to hold the Annual Meeting on Sunday, September 12th at the Little Red Schoolhouse.  There will be a tent on the front lawn, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back together with the Historical Society.  Please stay tuned for more details on this event and future programs.

In the interim, below is a list of virtual programs that we hope you will enjoy:

 

Doscher’s Candy – Past and Present
Enjoy this virtual tour of the Newtown headquarters of this historic Cincinnati candy company that dates from 1871, with its inviting gift shop, history wall, and fascinating production area.

 

Frank Duveneck, an American Master and perhaps the most influential painter in Cincinnati’s history. But that was not to be. In its place we now have the opportunity to engage with you in a forty-minute on-line virtual tour. Narrated and produced by Julie Aronson and the Cincinnati Art Museum, this is an inspiring journey through the history of Duveneck’s brilliant career as a painter, printmaker, and charismatic teacher.

 

Cincinnati Museum Center’s Speakers Bureau live, virtual programs:

Cincinnati Subway, Tuesday, July 27 at 2:00 p.m.

Jump aboard Cincinnati’s “not so rapid” transit/subway system and find out why and how it got derailed. The remnants of the never-completed system may still be seen around the city and it remains a topic of transportation studies and elections.

Sad, Seamy, Sinister Side of Cincinnati, Tuesday, August 24 at 2:00 p.m.

Serial murderers, grave robbers, epidemics, personal tragedies and even slime are all part of Cincinnati’s history. Spend an hour hearing stories about some of Cincinnati’s most notorious citizens and their nasty deeds. Listen to details about a few of Cincinnati’s saddest stories. Learn how two of Cincinnati’s presidents were victims of ghastly graveyard activities. Tragedies and crime abound in this program. Come prepared to be shocked and saddened. Appropriate for adults.

The Restoration of the Cincinnati Union Terminal, Tuesday, September 28 at 2:00 p.m.

After 3 years of meticulous restoration, Cincinnati Union Terminal looks forward to its next 100 years. Learn about needed repairs that were critical to the survival of the National Historic Landmark, many of which were behind the scenes and in non-public areas. Hear about the most modern scientific processes used to revive the structure along with the installation of essential mechanical and electrical systems. See restored artwork in their original sites. Learn about the newest and enhanced exhibits which have opened since the renovation.

The programs are free, but require registration in advance.  These live virtual speakers can be seen through Zoom.
