Cincinnati's German Heritage (Cincinnati Museum Center Virtual Speakers Bureau Program via Zoom) (Area Event)
The 19th century German settlement in Over-the-Rhine, an area located north and east of the Miami Erie Canal, was unique. Here the German population established their own city within Cincinnati, reconstructing the culture of their homeland. Churches, shops, schools, building and loans, breweries and other industries were abundant throughout their community, along with beer gardens, singing societies, theater and a Turnerverein (Turner Gym) for recreation. Learn how this lively, crowded, close-knit community left a lasting imprint on the entire society of Cincinnati.
