History & History Related Items

Cincinnati history:

John Filson, one of the first settlers in the Ohio Valley community, named is Losantiville, meaning "town opposite the mouth" of the Licking River. The community was the location of Fort Washington, which provided military protection for the surrounding territories. In 1790, it was named Cincinnati, in honor of the Society of Cincinnati, an organization of Revolutionary War Officers. The name change took place during a visit by Arthur St. Clair, Governor of the Northwest Territory, who was a member of the Society.

Winston Churchill called Cincinnati "The most beautiful of America's inland cities." It was platted in 1788 by land speculators. Settlement did not really occur until 1794 when it was opened for newcomers. When steamboats began to reach the shore, the city began to increase and grow even more. The Miami and Erie Canals, built in the late 1820's helped with transportation so that farmers were better able to sell their produce. Other businessmen began utilizing the canal access and came in the area. By the mid 1800's, Cincinnati was the world's largest pork-packing center which gave it one of its first nicknames, "Porkopolis." Once the Civil war began, there was much division in the area, but the city eventually supported the Union. After the war was over, Cincinnati prospered. They began trading with the southern states and eventually businessmen in the area arranged for a railroad to be built connecting the town to their southern market.
