“Corruption and Murder in the Gilded Age”

 

A spate of bloody killings and a devastating flood set off a firestorm that Cincinnati would never forget. In 1884, three nights of rioting known as the Cincinnati Courthouse Riots left dozens dead, a courthouse burned to the ground, and the way clear for a new political regime to sweep in. When jury tampering led to a murderer getting the milder verdict of manslaughter, throngs more than 10,000 citizens took to the streets to deliver their own justice. In this sweeping account of some of Cincinnati’s bloodiest days, historian Steven J. Rolfes examines the political, social, and economical milieu of a city swept by tides of change.  – excerpted from Amazon

Presentation "The 1937 Flood"

 

 

The Ohio River Flood of 1937 affected the city from January 18 to February 5, 1937.

 

With damage stretching from Pittsburgh to Cairo, Illinois, one million people were left homeless, 385 were dead and property losses reached $500 millionSix to 12 inches of rain fell in Ohio during January 13–25, 1937, totals never before or since equaled over such a large area of Ohio. January 1937 remains as the wettest month ever recorded in Cincinnati

 

 

JULY 19, 2017       Cincinnati Museum Center presents:         

 

Wooden Shoe Hollow

 

In a time that may seem long ago in human terms, but not even a     blink of Mother Earth's eye, a group of families who had once called Germany home in the 19th century came to settle in an area of the   Mill Creek valley in Cincinnati.

That area would later come to be called Wooden Shoe Hollow.

 

Families with names like Goetz, Wiese, Kettler, Hackemeyer, Brunswick, Osterbrock, Funke, Rahn, Howeller, Niehaus, Schumacher, Renegarbe, Friedhoff, Greber, Kissel, Koch, Mattfeld, Tieman, and countless others who made the earth and the family farm their new home in the new country. They provided for their families and their livelihood farming vegetables and they called themselves "gardeners".   

Though many of the names have long since disappeared from the mailboxes along Gray road and Wooden Shoe Hollow Lane, a hand full remain in the 21st century.
