    TOMB OF WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON – NORTH BEND

    by mtncorg Updated May 5, 2015

    William Henry Harrison was the first elected president to die in office. He only made it some 23 days into his four-year term. He was the oldest elected president when elected at 68 years of age – only Ronald Reagan is older, so far. It was originally thought the events of his inaugural day – he gave the longest inaugural speech in history of some two hours in the cold and rain, followed by attending three inaugural balls – led to a cold which then deepened into pneumonia, but the cold did not develop until three weeks after the inauguration. A recent 2014 medical analysis puts the cause of death as typhoid fever as a result of the White House being situated to close to open sewage dumping grounds at the time Harrison was living there.

    His death led to the end of the peak of the Whig Party for his successor, John Tyler, a bit of a cipher before gaining the top spot through Harrison’s death would go against many of the programs that many in the Whig Party had hoped to achieve.

    Born into a prominent Virginian political family at Berkeley Plantation, Harrison was the last president to be born a British citizen. His father was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and served as Virginia governor from 1781 to 1784. Sent to Philadelphia to study medicine which William did not enjoy, his father died shortly afterwards – 1790 – and William had to quit since he had no funds to continue. At the advice of Governor Henry “Light Horse” Lee, Harrison joined the army as an ensign in the 1st Infantry. Assigned to Cincinnati in the Northwest Territory, he became aide-de-camp to General “Mad Anthony” Wayne in 1792 and took part in the decisive Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794 which ended the Northwest Indian wars forcing cession of lands to settlement in Ohio.

    In 1795, Harrison married Anna Symmes from North Bend, Ohio. Her father, Judge John Cleves Symmes was not excited at first at his new son-in-law but warmed up in the years to follow as Harrison gained more successes on the battlefield. Over time, the Harrisons would have ten children.

    Resigning from the army in 1798, he became the Secretary of the Territory in the Northwest Territorial government and a year later – at age 26 - was elected to be the Congressional delegate. The following year, John Adams named him governor of the new territory of Indiana and he made his home at the capital of Vincennes on the banks of the Wabash River, building up a magnificent for the era home called Grouseland. Given permission to negotiate and sign treaties, he oversaw some 13 treaties which opened lands in most of southern Indiana to settlement. Loss of territory was a chief cause that brought tribes into the War of 1812 on the side of the British. He also tried to legalize slavery in the new territory but was blocked by the territorial legislature.

    Indian resistance to Harrison’s treaties coalesced behind the leadership of Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa – the Prophet – a pair of Shawnee brothers, in 1810. After a stormy meeting between Harrison and Tecumseh 10 August, Harrison led a force of more than 1,000 men north to try and intimidate the Shawnee, but the Indians launched a surprise attack 6 November. Harrison defeated the outnumbered attackers – the Battle of Tippecanoe – becoming a national hero as a result.

    Harrison remained in command in Indiana with the outbreak of the War of 1812 becoming the commander of the Army of the Northwest September 1812. Outnumbered, at first, he established a defensive position at Ft Meigs in northwestern Ohio for the winter. Bulked with reinforcements the following spring, he took the offensive leading the army north beating the British and their Indian allies in Indiana and Ohio, recapturing Detroit and subsequently invading Canada. In Canada, the British were defeated at the Battle of the Thames in which Tecumseh was slain by Richard Johnson. For his reward, Secretary of War John Armstrong reassigned Harrison to a quiet rear post and Harrison resigned in protest – he was later vindicated by Congress and given a gold medal for his services.

    After the war, Harrison returned to North Bend following his replacement as governor of Indiana Territory. He served in the Ohio Senate for two years and lost two elections before he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1824. Serving for four years, he resigned to become ambassador to Gran Colombia and Simon Bolivar for one year.

    Returning to North Bend again in 1829, he lived on his farm for the next ten years in relative obscurity. He was one of the multiple Whig candidates for president in 1836 when the Whig Party tried to run several regional candidates against the Democratic hand-picked successor to Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren. They hoped to deny Van Buren a majority and force a run-off election in the House of Representatives where they also hoped to gain a majority. Van Buren, however, eked out a narrow electoral victory and the Democrats maintained their majority in the House in any event.

    In 1840, the Whig Party unified behind Harrison. The economy had tanked under Van Buren’s watch and Jackson was no longer there to push his heavy weight behind his New York friend. Democrats played up Harrison as an old man who wanted nothing but to “sit in his log cabin drinking hard cider.” The Whigs jumped on that idea making Harrison into a paragon of the common man. They made log cabin-shaped bottles of hard cider and came up with one of the most famous campaign slogans in American political history, “Tippecanoe and Tyler, too!” The result was a landslide electoral victory for Harrison, the first Whig candidate to be successfully elected – the only other to be elected – Zachary Taylor – would also die in office.

    With Harrison in office, Henry Clay hoped to rule the roost but Harrison put those ideas on hold by naming Daniel Webster – leader of Clay’s main opposition amongst the Whigs. But Harrison had his own ideas of governing and resisted pressure even from Webster. In a cabinet meeting, Webster tried to get Harrison to reverse a decision on an appointment for the governor of Iowa in favor of his own friend instead. Harrison passed Webster a handwritten note and asked him to read it aloud to the cabinet. “William Henry Harrison, President of the United States”. Harrison then spoke, “William Henry Harrison, President of the United States, tells you, gentlemen, that, by God, John Chambers shall be governor of Iowa!”

    The tomb was originally a much simpler family tomb on the summit of Mt Nebo to which Harrison’s remains were moved to on 7 July 1841. The Harrison family sold their estate in North Bend in 1871 except for the six acres which held the tomb and the neighboring family cemetery, Congress Green, which they left to the State of Ohio on the condition they preserve the site. It took the State a while to live up to their end of the bargain for it was not until 1919 that money was appropriated for upkeep. The landscaping and entrance pillars topped with eagles were added along with the tall memorial obelisk which stands atop the old family tomb in 1924. There are 24 vaults in the tomb including Harrison and his wife and son, John, the father of Benjamin Harrison. John’s body was originally buried in the Congress Green cemetery, but his body was stolen. Discovered at the Ohio Medical College, the family recovered the body and placed it in the tomb with his parents.

    If one takes the Vine Street bus up the hill, at the ridgeline begins the Clifton Heights District. There's a Catholic University, and a hip commercial district with houka bars and coffee shops. There's a gothic church turned into a Urban Outfitter store here.

    St. Francis Xavier Church

    by BeatChick Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beautiful Jesuit church is located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. I only located this here among the Off-the-beaten-path tips because a lot of people aren't crazy like me, someone who likes to view the lovely architectural elements of churches & cathedrals, well at least not in small cities like Cincinnati. Paris, London, Rome, Jerusalem, Moscow, Milan, Florence, Siena - those are places you go to see churches, not small midwestern US towns!

    But this is a great church. It's lovingly painted in blue murals on the inside (blue is such a peaceful color and it denotes dignity & purity and is indicative of the Virgin Mary) and the outer architecture is lovely to behold, too: very tall and majestic with clock tower that chimes the hour & a steeple that would pierce the sky if it weren't for the nearby skyscraper buildings.

    Please do pop in for a minute to revive your spirits and to maintain a sense of spirit & solemnity - a brief respite from the hustle & bustle of downtown. Maybe you'll get to meet Bonnie, one of the caretakers, who is an extremely warm & inviting person. She's the lady who turned the lights on for me so that I might take better photos.

    Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum

    by BeatChick Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Spring Grove Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Cincinnati & the oldest, too, holding Revolutionary War & Civil War & subsequent war veterans & generals (you'll find a printable map located on their website listed below).

    Spring Grove was patterned after Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris with its huge grounds, statuary, mausoleums & crypts & winding paths, where Oscar Wilde & Jim Morrison are buried, .

    I came here one wintry day in early January 2005 to take some black & white photos, which I think set off settings that are dreary such as this day & the fact that it's a cemetery.

    Besides its historical quality, Spring Grove is also beneficial in studying genealogy, so please do contact them via the website. This is also an excellent home to choose as your final resting place.

    My friend, fellow VTer MadAboutParis, is preparing to be a docent for the cemetery!

    For more photographs of my visit, please check out my Spring Grove Travelogue:

    Directions:
    From I-75, take the Mitchell Avenue exit going west. Turn left onto Spring Grove Avenue and you'll see the entrance to the cemetery about another 1-2 miles further south.

  • Unique and fun things to do!

    by cincytransplant Written Mar 25, 2011

    If you're looking for some unique things to do, I recommend the following:

    1. Freedom Center - Downtown. Very historical and well done overview of Cincinnati's role in the underground railroad movement.

    2. Lebanon - about 25 minutes north of Cincinnati on 1-71 - the downtown area is a quaint and fun way to spend an afternoon. The Golden Lamb Restaurant and Hotel is the oldest inn in Ohio. The food is excellent and you can tour the hotel which has been visited by many presidents and dignitaries. There are also a number of great antique and other shops on the main street.

    3. Eden Park - awesome, beautiful park just outside of downtown.

    4. Mt Adams - a very hilly neat neighborhood outside of downtown. Lots of great restaurants, shops and night life. Parking is a bit tough, but once you find a place, you'll be glad you went there. My favorite restaurant is the Celestial. It is pricey, but the food is excellent and the views of the city are fabulous.

    5. Valley Vineyards - about 20 miles north of the city. A great place to tour and they have a neat restaurant where you pick out your steak or seafood and then grill it outside yourself. You get wine with your dinner plus a salad bar and desert. It is a lot of fun and the food and wine are awesome!

    6. River cruises - they are companies online that have cruises of the Ohio River along with dinner. It is a great way to see the city's skyline and take in the romance of the river.

    Emotions strong it's hard to hide
    The gratitude I feel inside
    When courage called
    You risked your life
    I salute you
    I close my eyes
    Your face appears
    It shows you've wept unmanly tears
    For wounds of war are rarely seen
    They're often buried deep within
    Right prevails when self denied
    A hope to live
    A cause to die
    You fought a war for liberty
    Allegience is your legacy.

    A Marine waits
    At Heavens gate
    Still standing in uniform
    The time goes by and soon is heard
    These cherished words to bring one home
    "Step forward now with honor
    You've borne your burden well
    Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets
    You've done your time in hell"
    I salute you
    Emotions strong it's hard to hide
    I salute you
    For the rest of my life
    I salute you
    -from a fwd

    Please have a silent moment in your heart, and prayers for the Marines' families

    Mainstrasse - Cool bar district in Northern Ky

    by myconductor Written Feb 19, 2010

    Mainstrasse is a turn of the century German village located in Nothern Kentucky. The location is very accessible, in downtown Covington right across the river from Cinicinnat, Ohio. The bars located here are what I label as your "hole-in-wall" venue, and I do not mean this in negative context. Rather you local dive type of bar, instead of some trending, upscale, stuffy atmosphere. There is a good mix of bars based on your style and type of crowd or entertainment you are searching for. None of them charge a cover, unless special event going on. My favorite in The Village Pub. As for restaurants, there a a few classy joints with excellent food, I recommend Ottos & DeFelice. If you are just looking for good pub food, Cosmo's and Cock n' Bull would be the place to go. The village sponors several festivals throughout the year including Mardi Gras, Maifest, and Oktoberfest to name a few. There are cool little shops and galleries in the area as well. If you are in the greater Cincinnati area and looking for a place to hang out, I recommend putting Mainstrasse on your itenerary

    Camp Dennison Civil War Monument

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated May 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Camp Dennison Civil War Monument is in a park-like setting where Galbraith Road dead-ends into Ohio Highway #126. There you will find a small monument, a flagpole, a mounted cannon, and an interpretative display. This marks the spot of Camp Dennison, one of three training camps for Ohio soldiers during the War Between the States. It was named for Ohio Governor William Dennison, a Cincinnati native.

    The road here, in the Indian Hill community, is surrounded by farmland and receives relatively little traffic today. During the time it was an army camp, a railroad ran through it, and the Little Miami River is nearby for water. Many people visit the monument by bicycle since the popular Little Miami Hike/Bike trail (following the old railroad grade) crosses the road just in front of the monument.

    No major Civil War battles were fought in southwestern Ohio. However, more than 50,000 recruits were trained here at Camp Dennison between 1861 and 1865. After the bloody battle of Shiloh, in Tennessee, the camp served as a hospital as well as a training center.
    Eighteen commanders oversaw the camp during its short but busy existence. In September, 1865, at the end of the war, the camp was deactivated.

    Directions:
    At the corner of Galbraith Road and OH-126, in Indian Hill, on the northeast side of Cincinnati.

    Woodland Mound

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated May 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the extreme southeastern corner of Hamilton County is Woodland Mound, a 1,030-acre park operated by the Hamilton County Parks District. There is an ancient Indian burial ground here, but it is unlikely that you will see it. The mound is "protected " by being unmarked and hidden.

    However, there is much else to see and do at Woodland Mound. In the center of the park is the Seasongood Nature Center with wildlife exhibits, two outdoor observation decks, a classroom, an auditorium and Nature's Niche Store. In the park you will also find the18-hole Vineyard Golf Course, Sweetwine Banquet Center, trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, a seasonal waterpark and and more. A campground and boat launch ramp on are located on the the southern edge of Woodland Mound along the Ohio River.

    There are several great parks in Hamilton County. Woodland Mound was opened in 1980 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the county parks department. Because of it's out-of-the-way location Woodland Mound is usually less crowded than some of the other parks.

    Directions:
    Woodland Mound may be reached by Taking U.S. Hwy. 52 east of Cincinnati. The main entrance is on Old Kellogg Road, just past Eight Mile Road.

    Saint Peter in Chains Cathedral

    by BeatChick Updated Feb 18, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Saint Peter in Chains Cathedral, the chief church of the archdiocese in Cincinnati, is a beautiful church to bring the family for Easter even if you're not Catholic, which is what we did one year! We're not Catholic but Terry, my ex-husband grew up Catholic & we thought it was important for the kids to get a taste of the various facets of Christianity in order to make up their own minds.

    The choir singing in the balconies, the swinging incense, the pageantry of the ceremonies makes for a very heady Easter experience. We found it to be quite special for the occasion and it is one I've mimicked when I've been overseas in Paris - I attended the Easter Paques celebration at Nôtre Dame April 2003.

    The church was designed by the same architect who conceived the Ohio State Capitol in Columbus, Henry Walters.

    so this isn't in cincy, its about 1.5 hr. drive, but so worth the mentioning.
    Yellow Springs, Ohio....probably one of the happiest places in our state. Its the kind of place where kids still play outside and people say hi to you as you walk down the street. Everything there is one-of-a-kind locally owned from the grocery store to the laundry mat. Antioch College is located there too. They have Ha Ha's pizza or the Ye Olde Tavern, which is in the haunted ohio books!! the town is surrounded by woods and you can go hiking, repelling, picnicing! and the drive out once your off the highway is something out of a movie. Make sure you put some Bob Dylan or Neil Young in your c.d. player for it:)

    Withrow Nature Preserve

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Oct 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the 270 acres at Withrow Nature Preserve are undeveloped. They are preserved for nature. The core of the preserve was originally a private estate and the house, built in 1930, now serves as offices and meeting space. It is operated by the Hamilton County Parks Department.

    Except for the house and about an acre of landscaped lawn, the property is heavily wooded. Beside the house is a small ampitheater-like wedding setting which is very popular for small marriage ceremonies. I officiated at a summer wedding there when two large black rat snakes slithered across the walkway, frightening some of the guests. But the snakes were only going about their business and are harmless.

    Other animals that may be seen in the park include whitetail deer, foxes, raccoons, opossoms squirrels and many more. Trout Lily Trail offers a short, and sometimes steep, walk along a hillside covered with mature hardwoods. This is a particularly good place to see spring wildflowers.

    That's about it. You will not find any playgrounds, picnic areas or other such amenities. There are plenty of other parks for that. This one is primarily set aside in an undisturbed natural state. It's a good place to find a little peace and quite.

    You absolutely have to go here...

    by Devildogs_Doll Written May 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Blind Lemon - hands-down one of my favorite places in Cincinnati. I wish they bottled the atmosphere here and SOLD it.

    You might miss the Blind Lemon if you're not pointed to it by a local...and if you want to get to know locals, there is no better place to go. It's located in the steep streets of Mt. Adams - another world altogether in Cincinnati. Finding parking is hard, but drive around until you find a spot because you don't want to miss this.

    Chances are if you can make it to Mt. Adams and just ask a passing-by local, they can point you right to the place near the corner of Hatch & Louden Streets. It doesn't look like much when you arrive...a small cobblestone alleyway between two buildings with a sign above. A plaque on the wall in the narrow, completely cobble-stoned alleyway shows names of all the celebrities that have visited throughout the years.

    The night to go is a Friday or Saturday night in the summer. There is a bonfire pit surrounded by white, wrought-iron chairs. Ivy climbs the walls all around the courtyard. Don't worry about making noise dragging your chair closer to the fire. People smile at you from across the flames. Wait outside and one of their excellent wait staff will be by to take your drink order. Beer, coffee, mixed drinks... they have it.

    The atmosphere in the open air courtyard is zen-like, dreamy, ethereal, and if you're feeling so inclined...romantic. Soft guitar music lulls you into a trance as you make conversation with others sitting near the fire. For a "bar", it's quiet and chilled-out. Inside, an antiquated bar curves throughout a low-ceilinged room overflowing with personality and charm. Much to your shock, you realize the music you were hearing outside was live...and there is usually someone with a guitar crooning in the corner. This is the perfect place to relax or make conversation. It's an EXCELLENT first-date hangout and great for those who want to meet new people. It is and always will be one of my favorite off-the-beaten path places in Cincinnati.

    Holy Cross-Immaculata Church - Mt. Adams

    by BeatChick Updated Sep 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on the pinnacle of Mt. Adams, lies the Holy Cross Immaculata Church where the Catholic faithful return every Good Friday to pray the beads of the rosary on the steep steps leading up to the church.

    My last visit there I counted 85 steps - that's a lot of rosary beads!! :D

    The altarpieces on the inside of the church was painted by Johann Schmitt, who was an art teacher to one of Cincinnati's illustrious artists, Frank Duveneck (click "I accept these terms" to view his famous The Whistling Boy), who I mentioned in my Maisonette review. Here's a list of 7 of the altarpieces by Schmitt (with photos):
    Annunciation
    Birth of the Virgin Mary
    Immaculate Conception
    The Sacrifice of Isaac
    Expulsion from the Garden of Eden
    Assumption of the Virgin Mary
    Presentation of the Virgin Mary at the Temple

    Besides it's focal point in Cincinnati for Good Friday devotions, the church is also beautiful architecturally & is a wonderful place to view the sunrise & sunset over Cincinnati & to see the lights of the city twinkling & sparkling at night.
