Museums & Historic Sites of Greater Cincinnati was founded in 1992 by a group of ten historic house museums to encourage an appreciation of the Ohio River Valley and its history through tourism, educational programming, and other activities. In 2009, the coalition decided to broaden its focus to include more of the region’s historical and cultural attractions. MHS-GS is currently comprised of over 25 participating organizations located in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio; and Boone and Kenton counties in Kentucky. Each site offers a unique perspective on local history and culture through public programs, exhibits, lectures, and tours.
