People may know Over-the-Rhine for its great restaurants and bars, but it has a history as rich as its exciting nightlife. The Over-the-Rhine Museum, slated to open in 2020 with a pop-up version available in 2016, will capture the community’'s extensive past with the help of local residents, historians, designers and business owners.

Here to discuss how the museum’s immersive experience will reveal  OTR’s history, from its origins to modern day, are Over-the-Rhine Museum Board Chair Anne Delano Steinert, an historic preservationist and educator currently pursuing a doctorate in urban public history; board member Nancy Yerian, a museum professional and public historian; and, board member John Blatchford, owner of Kunst real estate company and co-founder of Cincinnati Preservation Collective
