WELCOME! The Price Hill Historical Society & Museum was formed to preserve the history of a unique area in the western hills of Cincinnati, Ohio. Once reached by an incline that carried passengers and cargo up the steep slope, Price Hill promised fresh air, suburban living, and tree-shaded walks. Today, the chiming bells of the trolley cars may be a distant memory, but Price Hill retains much of its turn-of-the-century charm. We celebrate the people, the neighborhood, and the history of Price Hill by publishing books, presenting community events, and serving as a resource to anyone who wants to know more about our history. Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except January, June, and July, in our headquarters on Warsaw Avenue at 7 pm.
"PROTECTING OUR TREASURES"
CAPITAL FUND DRIVE - 2020
The building that houses our collections of documents, photographs, and artifacts is almost 100 years old, and it needs repairs and renovations to keep it standing and serving as the repository of Price Hill's history.
We are undertaking a major fundraising campaign to accomplish this, and we are asking all of our members and friends of the Society to contribute. No amount is too small . . . or too large! Every penny you donate will be used to help the Price Hill Historical Society & Museum continue its mission to preserve Price Hill's past. Please join us as we strive to create a "perfect vision" for our Society as we celebrate 30 years coming up in 2020!
