Cincinnati

The Queen City

by Michele Roth

C

incinnati, also known as the Queen City, is a city rich in history and culture with exceptional visual and creative arts, professional sports teams and top notch museums. Whether you are a resident or a visitor there is always something to learn, see and do in Cincinnati and our neighboring cities of Covington and Newport. For those reasons and many more, it’s no surprise that in 2012 Lonely Planet Travel Guide named Cincinnati number three of the top ten travel destinations in the United States. Cincinnati offers all the benefits of larger cities like Chicago and New York while maintaining the small hometown hospitality. In this section we like to bring interesting facts and opinions. This is what we have for you in this month’s issue:

Cover Story

WheRE Things In The Night by Sue Cunningham

he darkness sets in and the fog TSpring rises around Mirror Lake but the House Gazebo in Eden Park is

still visible. So is the woman dressed in black looking out over the park, sometimes even crying. The woman’s name is Imogene Remus and sightings of her have been reported since her death on October 6th, 1927 when she was killed by her husband George, also known as the “King of the Bootleggers”. This is one of the stories told by Dan Smith of Haunted Cincinnati Tours. Dan adds, “We cover the history of the past so people better understand the haunted present.” Another popular site hides its horrid past and stands with beauty and grace at the corner of 14th and Elm Street in Over the Rhine. This site is Music Hall and it’s known as one of the best and most beautiful concert theaters in the world. It is also known to be one of the most haunted places in the United States. 10

KEY CINCINNATI OCTOBER 2013

In 1818 four acres of land were purchased and in 1821 Ohio’s first Commercial Hospital and Insane Asylum was established and under that name it also became the Cincinnati Hospital, City Infirmary, Orphan Asylum and Longview Asylum. After a Cholera outbreak left many children orphaned a building was constructed to house the orphans. Thirty years later it was known as the Pest House because the building was used to isolate patients with infectious diseases. With the large number of bodies that needed buried the hospital used the grounds to dispose of patients who died of disease (as well as for those who died at their own hand) and the homeless and indigent at the time of their passing. At the time it was on the outskirts of town, so the deceased were bundled up and placed in the ground. The land continued to be used as a Potter’s Field for the next twenty years.

After several complaints, the city turned the land into a park and the Pest House that was also once the Orphan Asylum was used for expositions until it was turned over to the Music Hall Association. Since none of the graves were marked, Music Hall was built over them. During construction 19 skulls and approximately 60 femurs were found and, although most were adults, some were also children.

With that history it is no surprise that there have been numerous sightings and why paranormal investigators frequently visit Music Hall. If you are looking for a brush with the paranormal, Music Hall is a must whether you choose to tour the facility alone or as part of a traveling tour. Another haunted spot that is also on the tour circuit is ten minutes from downtown Cincinnati in Wilder, Kentucky at Bobby Mackey’s Night Club. The tours take you to the basement of the establishment also referred to as the “Gateway to Hell due to stories like the one of a 22 year old pregnant Pearl Bryan who was gruesomely murdered in 1896 and is said to haunt Bobby Mackey’s. This honkytonk has been the subject of several books and televisions shows, which may be why some consider it the most haunted nightclub in the United States.

Scott Jackson was arrested for the murder of Pearl Bryan in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky. Alonso Walling was later implicated as an accomplice and both were convicted and sentenced to hang in 1897. They were the last two people to be hanged in Newport just south of the Taylor-Southgate Bridge behind what is now the Newport Courthouse on York Street. The gallows were then tour down but the memory and even sightings of the convicted murderers are said to haunt the area where they were executed. A house at 316 Pike street was purchased by David Sinton for his daughter Anna and her husband Charles Phelps Taft who was the brother of President William Howard Taft. That house along with the large collection of art was given to the city of Cincinnati which is now the Taft Museum of Art. Many visitors to the museum have heard footsteps

and seen strange figures in the hallways of this Nationally Historic house. It is believed that Anna Taft herself can be seen walking throughout her home in a pink dress and it is not uncommon for items to fall off the shelves in the gift shop. Our area is full of untold stories. Brad Hill of American Legacy Tours shares, “We love the history of our area and sharing that history is what we love to do the most. Greater Cincinnati has some of the best untold stories in the country and our mission is to tell those stories.” If you are looking for the chance to meet Imogene Remus as she sits at the gazebo or Anna Taft as she roams the halls of her home, the best introduction to the details behind these stories is by a guided tour. The tour guides will be happy to entertain you and to keep you safe from things that go bump in the night.
