Why: We love Walnut Hills!
On Saturday March 22 join us for an open house to influence and inspire the design and use of the Five Points Alley. The open house will be from 10 am to 3 pm at the Dr. Dillard Building (791 E McMillan).
Last year we cleaned up the Five Points Alley and had a blast with a series of biergartens. This year, we want to do even more with the space—but we want to know what you want that to be!
WHRF has teamed up with UC’s MetroLab to create an interactive community visioning session. Together, we’ll create a vision for the Five Points Alley—and a chandelier that represents our vision and will eventually hang in the Five Points Alley. The vision we create with your help will inspire MetroLab’s design for the space.
Drop by anytime between 10 am and 3 pm on March 22. It’s great way to create and connect with your neighbors. We’ve even heard rumors there might even be Eli’s BBQ…

Informational Meeting and Workshop:
Saturday, February 15 @ 1:00 p.m.
2950 Gilbert Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45206
Opportunity 1: Volunteer your time
Whether you are able to offer a lot of time or a little, we would love to have you join our team. You will have the opportunity to lead tours, operate the gift shop, assist with special events, and complete research projects and clerical duties.
Opportunity 2: Reenact
Are you interested in 19th century history and the abolitionist movement? Then help us bring history to life. Reenactors will play the roles of known historical characters or create their own based on life in the 1800s. Reenactors will speak in first-person and help visitors experience what it might have been like to live in Cincinnati in the years before the Civil War. Histories will focus on the 1830s-1850s when Harriet and her family lived in Cincinnati and before she wrote her famous anti-slavery work, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. A local reenactor will be present to talk about ideas, and we encourage you to bring your own creativity and knowledge. All ages and levels of experience are welcome.
