The passenger side of the Price Hill Incline opened in July 1874, and the freight
side opened two years later. The Price Hill Incline was the only Cincinnati incline
with two separate sets of tracks. The "Highland Mary" and the "Lilly of the Valley,"
named for Rees Price's daughters, were the cars that carried passengers. An accident
in 1943 led to inspection of the Price Hill Incline and it was determined that the
repairs would be too costly, so the incline was closed down.
