Cincinnati Museum Center brings history to life during OH, Pioneer! weekend Feb. 23 and 24

CINCINNATI – Step back in time to the 18th century Ohio River Valley during OH, Pioneer! living history weekend at Cincinnati Museum Center. Join us Feb. 23 and 24 to experience traditional crafts and live music, hear stories of the past by costumed interpreters and watch a live weapon demonstration by a firing military.

Did you know that Cincinnati’s original name was Losantiville? A mixture of Greek, Latin and French, Losantiville means “city across from the Licking River.” Learn fun facts about our city’s development, play children’s games popular more than 200 years ago, try food available to early settlers and more as we discover and celebrate Cincinnati’s rich history.

Perfect for families and history enthusiasts alike, this interactive event also showcases rarely displayed pieces of local history from our Cincinnati History Library collection, including the Symmes Purchase, a document key to the settlement and growth of our city, and the Treaty of Greenville which put an end to the conflicts between Native Americans and settlers in the southern 2/3rds of Ohio.

Visit for a full list of activities and presenters.

Activities in the Cincinnati History Museum are free for Museum Center Members or included in your All Museums Pass for $12.50 for adults and $8.50 for children.

OH, Pioneer! is presented with support from The Willard and Jean Mulford Charitable Fund of the Cambridge Charitable Foundation.
