I met Laura Hoevener, co-author of the book Adventures Around Cincinnati, a few months ago at a homeschool event and was tickled when we started talking about her book because I thought this would be a great resource to pass along to you! I will post some sites throughout the year for you and your family to investigate throughout the Greater Cincinnati Area. Some are less known than others and I will start with one that I have not been to before.

This museum tells the story of signs, beginning with wooden ones all the up to the present. The collection has signs dating from 1890-1972 with a Main Street exhibit that sounds amazing. There is a section on neon signs and the bonus is that there is a company located in the building called Neonworks and you can watch the craftsmen work as they crate signs.
We loved the Sign Museum when we went last fall while the college kids were home for break. It is surprisingly beautiful. 🙂
What a great idea Lisa!! Thanks for posting.
