We need your stories! Glass House Collective is working with the Historic Glass Farms Neighborhood Association and Battery Heights Neighborhood Association on a project called The Pop Up Living History Museum. This project will showcase and celebrate the history of Glass Street through temporary and multi-media installations. Right now, we are in the process of collecting stories and artifacts from the community.
Etta Kanipes shared Neighborhood Association memorabilia, a list of the businesses that used to occupy the storefronts on Glass Street, and a scrap book of local images and articles about the community. Pat Woods compiled news articles about the area dating back to the 1920s. Ron Gilbert is inviting historian Jim Ogden to do a Civil War walking tour. Pat Hicks shared old photographs of the area. The images showcase her family’s home on Arno Street, Pat and her sister standing in front of a storefront business on Glass Street, and more. Glass House Collective has been gathering additional information from the Hamilton County Bicentennial Library Local History section.
We look forward to continue celebrating the rich history of Glass Street with our neighbors and hope you will join us on April 21st for the Pop Up Living History Museum. For more information, please contact Teal [at] glasshousecollective.org.
