An Old Map

Just for fun, here is an interesting old map of the St. Anne's Hill neighborhood prior to the construction of Ohio Route 35 through the city. Today, the highway runs along what was then called Richard Street.

Highlights include Stivers High School, Ruskin Elementary School, and Bomberger Park - all of which are still important community assets.
Sharp-eyed readers will also notice some of the surrounding streets were taken for urban renewal areas as well.

Thanks to Gordon for providing the photo!

Do you have old maps and photos to share? Let us know!

PS. Don't forget - our next monthly meeting is Tuesday, January 5th at 7 pm!
