New 2022 Live Virtual Speakers Bureau Presentations

 

Cincinnati Heritage Programs Speakers Bureau is pleased to announce the next 3 months of our 2022 Zoom presentation schedule. These hour-long programs will be presented live on the 4th Tuesday of April, May, and June and are free of charge. You can register for these free programs by going to www.cincymuseum.org/heritage-programs/speakers-bureau.

 

And coming in July as, part of the Cincinnati’s celebration of 200 years of Jewish history, our program will be Cincinnati’s Jewish Heritage where we will discover some of the treasures Cincinnati’s Jewish community has given not only to the city, but also to the entire world. Watch for this and other uniquely Cincinnati stories we will be sharing with you.

Wooden Shoe Hollow

April 26 at 2 p.m. via Zoom

They came from Westphalia, Germany, over a century ago, but these “Inwanderers” did not go “Over the Rhine.” Instead, Inwanderers settled across the Mill Creek. They were gardeners and truck farmers who, for nearly 100 years, sold their produce in downtown Cincinnati markets. They lived together in the fertile hollow, north of Spring Grove Avenue and Winton Place, where many of their greenhouses covered the landscape. The group carried on the traditions of wearing wooden shoes in their gardens, worshiping in their German church and dancing on Saturday nights to the music of their homeland.

Cincinnati’s oldest suburb was first settled by pioneer surveyor Israel Ludlow who built the first blockhouse on this land which was soon followed by other settlers. The neighborhood developed into a transportation, retail and industrial center as well as the home for wealthy Cincinnatians. Having suffered a decline after World War II, Northside is emerging as a revitalized eclectic community.
