Are you expecting lots of company this summer?

 

The Cincinnati Preservation Association can provide interesting information for those who value the history of our region.  Architreks – walking tours - are offered on a regular basis between May and October and cover a wide range of areas and topics related to the neighborhoods.  Sometimes, you will actually be invited into a home or cultural site of significance.  Tours are $10 for adults and $5 for children.  Most are 2 miles or less and run from 1-2 hours.
