As regular Food Hussy readers know - I like tours. I think I've uncovered nearly every tour in Cincinnati. Maybe that should be my bucket list - go on every tour in the city! :-)
There's a whole new set of tours I found out about this year - the Cincinnati Heritage Programs by the Cincinnati Museum Center! As you'll know when you check out their schedule - about half of them are sold out - and they go quick! Why? Because these are once a year tours - when they announce that schedule - BOOM - they fill up! But there are still some great tours available!
Some of these items were just gorgeous - in addition to being historic. They're not sure but the fire hat is a very early one - potentially from Independence, KY. The gun in the bottom left was Christian Moerlein's. The stained glass door in the lower right was STUNNING.
They rotate these pieces in and out of display depending on the collections of the time. It's pretty fascinating to see some of the items that aren't on display!
Henry Boyd? Henry is a slave that bought his freedom. He then moved to the Cincinnati area and became a carpenter. He became fairly successful and then helped other folks on the Underground Railroad. Pretty cool stuff.
Crosley Car. So cool!!!! Larry saw that and said "oh Lord - we're gonna be here a while".
I have so many more pics but I don't want to show you everything - you'll have to check it out for yourself! The Geier is open by appointment only but if you have the opportunity - it's not to be missed.
The Cincinnati Heritage Programs run through November of 2014 - and there are two coming up quickly - May 13 is the Crosley tour and June 4 is the Historic Churches of Newport. If you are at all interested in Cincinnati history - I highly recommend these tours and can't say enough good things! I hope you get the chance to enjoy these tours as well!
Disclosure: Cincinnati Museum Center provided me two tickets on the tour in exchange for this post but the opinions are all my own.
