Over the Rhine: When Beer Was King

Date: 
Monday, March 2, 2015 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
 

Author lecture and book signing.

In the 1870s, Over-the-Rhine (OTR) was comparable to the cultural hearts of Paris and Vienna.  By the turn of the last century, the neighborhood was home to roughly 300 saloons and had over a dozen breweries within or adjacent to its borders.  It was beloved by countless citizens and travelers for the exact reasons that others successfully sought to destroy it.  This is the story how the "Paris of America" became a time capsule.
