About this Project

History Walks is a collaborative effort between the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Historical Society (GH/MCHS) and the Grandview Heights Public Library (GHPL). The rich history of the GH/MC area includes inspiring structures, notable residents, ecological landmarks, and stories too numerous to share. Providing historical information to local residents, visitors, and the general public helps ensure this amazing past is preserved for future generations. History Walks is a collection of walking tours, each with approximately 8 - 9 stops for which the associated history is described.  We encourage walking, running, or biking the tour routes to get the most benefit from this experience.
Additional tours will be added to the app in the future so check back in for more fun local history.
