Landmarks are more than statues and great buildings--they tell the world what is important to a community. Behind every landmark is a story, and Cincinnati has many stories. A charming gazebo is actually the site of a grisly murder committed by a gangster. Symphonies and operas performed in an elegant hall are actually serenading the forgotten dead of a century before. What is now an office building once held the relics of an ancient saint, attracting thousands of pilgrims every year. These and many other stories make up the tapestry of Cincinnati Landmarks.

About the Author

Author Steven J. Rolfes has spent years telling these stories in print, on the radio, and in a museum. He has selected numerous vintage postcard images from the Greater Cincinnati Memory Project, ranging from the early 1800s right up to the modern Oktoberfest Chicken Dance. Behind each image is a story--even a few ghosts! Some of these landmarks can still be seen; others, like the people who created them, are now only the memories of a great city.
