About this blog

In theory: This is for residents and guests of greater Cincinnati. Hopefully you will find it to be a good introduction to many curious yet accessible places off the beaten path.

In practice: Let’s gawk at stuff.

Oh, and I’m not one of those bloggers who loves to copy-and-paste. Unless otherwise noted, all of the text and photographs here are mine. The skyline image on the header of this blog is public domain.

About the inspiration

Some of what I’ve posted on this blog was first seen in an Architreks tour, hosted by the Cincinnati Preservation Association. Two-hour tours cost the same as a movie ticket but are a more fulfilling experience.

I also encourage you to visit the Cincinnati Historical Society Library, located in the basement of Union Terminal. A small portion of their collection is also available online.
