Lost Cincinnati at the Heritage Village Museum
Aug. 13, 2019 12 p.m.
SHARONVILLE, Ohio –Author, Jeff Suess will present “Lost Cincinnati” at Heritage Village Museum and provide an opportunity to rediscover many of Cincinnati’s lost treasures! Cincinnati earned its nickname of “Queen City of the West” with a wealth of fine theaters and hotels, a burgeoning brewery district, and the birth of professional baseball. With the development of the city and passage of time, many of these treasures vanished. However, if we look closely, we can see how each left their mark for us to see today. We welcome you to revisit the favorite locales from old Coney Island to Crosley Field. Join author Jeff Suess as he delves into the mystery and legacy of Cincinnati’s lost landmarks and highlights some places that need to be preserved. Admission is $5 or free for museum members and children under the age of 4. You may bring your own lunch. Cookies and drinks will be provided.
Jeff Suess is the author of “Lost Cincinnati,” “Hidden History of Cincinnati,” “Cincinnati Then and Now,” and “AAC 150” on the Art Academy of Cincinnati. He is the librarian of the Cincinnati Enquirer, where he keeps the newspaper archive and writes about Cincinnati history. He regularly does presentations on local history.
