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.
