November 19, 2017 ~ Hidden History of Cincinnati, 4:30 p.m. Little Red Schoolhouse
So many colorful stories are lost to time. The nation’s first train robbery occurred in the Cincinnati area, and some clever victims hid jewelry in their hair and bodices.

Just outside the city, a young Annie Oakley beat her future husband in a shooting contest.
