Price Hill by Christine Mersch
Book DescriptionEarly settlers first called this area Boldface Hill, for a Native American chieftain, but the name was soon changed to Price s Hill, named after Rees Price and his family, who were among the first city dwellers to see the residential potential of the area. Rees s father, Evan Price, speculated in land west of the city, and his son opened a brickyard and sawmill to serve the building boom. In 1874, Rees s sons John and William built an inclined plane to make the commute up the hill easier. With improved transportation, the community s population soared, mostly because the air was cleaner up on the hill than it was downtown. Strong community roots were quickly seeded and have since grown. Schools such as Seton, Elder, and Western Hills each have a large number of supportive alumni. Catholic and Protestant churches were built, as well as two synagogues. Businesses were started, and two libraries grew with the population. Residents were active in politics, social clubs, and civic associations. The first Skyline Chili opened here and was named for the stunning view of Cincinnati this hill offers. Other local favorites are Price Hill Chili and the Crow s Nest. Through more than 200 photographs and illustrations, readers can see for themselves the roots of this great community."
