I was born and raised in Cincinnati, and miss it very much, but I am getting used to small town life south and west of the border, after being here a couple of years. I have a couple of pages online with links to where I lived most of my adult life in Anderson Township, and a few other cincy favs.
The photo is that of the Miller-Leuser House in Anderson Township. I found out about 10 years ago that my 5x great-grandmother lived there.
ANDERSON TOWNSHIP HISTORICAL SOCIETY– Located in the brick house on the same property as the Miller-Leuser Log House. The log house is a 1796 log structure and was the oldest continually occupied log home until 1968. There is also a barn, a corn crib and an outhouse. The Historical Society is home to a genealogy collection and a research department for the Anderson area. Open June through October. 1-3 p.m. the second and fourth Sundays of the month; and by appointment. Free. 6550 Clough Pike at Bartels Road, Anderson Twp. 231-2114.
I used to live in Anderson Township, an eastern suburb, after living in Oakley and Hyde Park for many years. In Anderson I raised kids, a couple of pets, had two husbands, no, not at the same time.
I used to like to go to Withrow Nature Preserve
or Woodland Mound
for daily walks, the latter had a great 18 hole frisbee course. I loved it. I miss having parks within a couple of miles
of where I live, but Madison has Clifty Falls park, an Indiana State Park. There was a park practically in my back yard in Anderson, until they built the school there. My favorite city park to walk in was Stanberry Park.
I have spent many days walking inthe creek there. All the parks are great for walking! Stickers for Hamilton County parks were only about $5 per year, making those quite a bargain. Cincinnati city parks did not require a sticker or fee, and Cincinnatians love their parks!
Here’s something you don’t see every day. A Castle!
Other places I liked to go were:
Downtown in general, anywhere along the riverfront!
Lots of Fun Just Across the River, TOO!
I live in Madison, Indiana now. Downtown is a national historic district, and the hovel pictured is where I call home.
To say it needs work would be more a misunderstanding than anything else. It is falling down, but it has potential. What’s life without a few challenges? This place is that.
