Upcoming Meetings and Speakers

JULY 18, 2018       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.


     Book by Charlotte Pieper "Wooden Shoe Hollow" available on Amazon.

This unique Ohio driving tour begins at Harrison and ends 557 miles later near West Point. It features 56 interpretive wayside exhibits and over 600 directional signs.
