The Over-the-Rhine Museum presents its very first History Harvest! Come join us for this multi-layered event throughout the Poeple’s Liberty building at 1805 Elm Street on November 26, 9:00am – 2:00pm .
1) CHAT AND NOSH
In the lounge area on the first floor, five local history experts will answer questions about their area of expertise in an informal, living room-like atmosphere. Delicious snacks will be provided.
9 am - 10 am: Steven Hampton, Over-the-Rhine Brewery District
10 am - 11 am: Nancy Yerian, Historian of local activism and LGBTQ history
11 am - 12 pm: Anne Delano Steinert, Architectural historian
12 pm - 1 pm: Don Heinrich Tolzmann, German-American historian
1 pm - 2 pm: Dann Woellert, Food historian
2) SCANNING BEE
Do you have old photos or documents of Over-the-Rhine history? Bring them to our Scanning Bee on the second floor for us to add to the museum’s digital archive. You lend us your documents for a quick scan. We keep a copy and we can send you one too. These documents will help us move forward in the planning and interpretation of our bricks-and-mortar museum space and we need your support for this! Anything from photos to letters to receipts or menus is welcome. We can scan documents of all sizes.
3) ORAL HISTORY COLLECTION
If you have lived, worked, worshiped, or played in Over-the-Rhine or can tell the story of your family, visit us on the third floor where we will be conducting oral history interviews on the spot. You can just drop in or make an appointment in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear your story!
The History Harvest is part of the People’s Liberty PL20 series highlighting past People’s Liberty grantees, including Anne Delano Steinert, Over-the-Rhine Museum board chair.
