Speaker: Mark Plageman   of the Price Hill Historical Society                                                     

Visitors to the Price Hill Historical Society and Museum often ask about one resident who made his home in Price Hill for less than five years. But what a home it was! Almost a century after George Remus ran one of the most extensive bootlegging operations in the country from Cincinnati's west side, his name still has the ability to conjure up images of a gilt-edged mansion with a sleek modern swimming pool and other Jazz Age excesses. Why is the story of George Remus so fascinating? He used legal loopholes in the Volstead Act to make a fortune selling whiskey during Prohibition, he was ruthless and acted swiftly to protect his own interests, but he was widely known as a generous man who never forgot a friend or a favor, and he really knew how to throw a party. George Remus, for a few golden years, lived Gatsby's dream-he was the "King of the Bootleggers."
