What: History Hunters Tour of City Hall
When: Friday, March 20, 2009 10 AM
Where: Cincinnati City Hall 801 Plum St. Cincinnati, OH 45202, meet at the information desk Who: Homeschoolers of all ages: Tour limited to 30 participants
RSVP: to Laura with the number of people attending

The tour consists of a guided tour through City Hall. You will learn about the rich culture of Cincinnati through the images in the beautifully detailed stained glass windows. In addition, you will learn about the workings of Cincinnati's city government and the Romanesque design of the building. The tour will last about one hour.

I stumbled upon the information about this tour quite by accident but figured it fit well into our history hunter theme of exploring interesting historic places in and around the Cincinnati area. Our tourguide was a wealth of information and for the most part managed to hold the attention of our VERY LARGE group. We had about 40 people (yes, some people showed up without RSVPing!) but the group was well behaved! The building is AMAZING on the inside, you don't really realize from the outside just how grand the building is. We got to go into the office of the mayor and the city manager and also sit in the city council meeting room.
