WELCOME! The Price Hill Historical Society & Museum was formed to preserve the history of a unique area in the western hills of Cincinnati, Ohio. Once reached by an incline that carried passengers and cargo up the steep slope, Price Hill promised fresh air, suburban living, and tree-shaded walks. Today, the chiming bells of the trolley cars may be a distant memory, but Price Hill retains much of its turn-of-the-century charm. We celebrate the people, the neighborhood, and the history of Price Hill by publishing books, presenting community events, and serving as a resource to anyone who wants to know more about our history. Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except January and July, in our headquarters on Warsaw Avenue at 7 pm.


Visit the Price Hill Historical Society table at Elder's Schaeper Center on Saturday, December 2, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for Holiday on the Hill. (Please note, the PHHS Museum will NOT be open that day.)

Our December membership meeting is our annual holiday party, on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at 7:00 pm at our museum on Warsaw Avenue. We'll supply the ham, please bring a side dish, appetizer, or dessert to share. There will be games and sing-a-longs and other holiday fun. Don't miss it!

The PHHS is now featured on a podcast called "Ohio Versus the World." Season 3, Episode 2 features George Remus, the King of the Bootleggers. Click HERE to listen to the podcast.
