    Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

    by chattygirl7491 Written Sep 14, 2015

    Went there yesterday and what a hidden gem. I've lived in the area all my life and never been there .. went with a good friend and we were both amazed. The museum alone was worth the price to have a room full of ancient art all to ourselves was such an experience. A lot of it was thousands of years old and just such a surprise to find in Hamilton. The park was larger than we expected and thought it's open year round we went on the ideal day the temp and sky were just perfect. you can rent golf carts (20 dollars for first hour ) walk or drive. We drove and would just stop and get out to explore. Theres lovely lakes and there was a wedding going on ... nice venue for a smallish wedding. This 10,000 acre park has lovely nature trees with sculpture displayed throughout which adds interest to the natural beauty.

    Hamilton: City of Sculpture

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Mar 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More than thirty varied pieces of sculpture adorn the streets, parks, and public places of Hamilton. Walking through the streets of the city is like taking a stroll through an outdoor gallery, with old and new sculptures of all sizes, shapes, and colors on display. The city has been recognized by Governor Bob Taft as the "City of Sculpture."

    Pictured here is one of the more recent pieces, "Snapshot" by Jane DeDecker. It is in front of the Butler County Administration Building on High Street. An active citizen's group oversees the placement and maintainence of the sculptures.

    Directions: In parks and along streets throughout the city.

    Dedicated on July 4, 1906, the Butler County Soldiers, Sailors and Pioneers Monument was built on land which had been the site of Fort Hamilton in the 1790s. The three story structure houses a small museum with military displays, including an impressive collection of Civil War weapons. One of its most notable features is a pair of two art glass windows honoring the service of women during the Civil War. Engraved on the walls are the names of Butler County pioneers and veterans of all American wars from the Revolutionay War thru the Spainish-American war in 1898.

    On the dome is a 3,500 lb. 17 ft. bronze statue of a young Civil war soldier known locally as "Billy Yank," waving his cap in victory.
