Explore. Learn. Create. Participate.
Our goal with each program is to inform, engage and grow a group of people interested in and educated about historic preservation.
Five times a year our organization gathers for a meetup. It’s a time to share updates on our projects and learn more about what our members are doing. Sometimes we meet on site of a current or recent building renovation. Sometimes we meet at a historic watering hole. Either way the event is free and open to the public.
2019 Meetup Dates:
January 29, March 26, May 28, July 30, September 24
Impromptu church tours, surprising roof-top views, neighborhood gossip, invitations to taste home-brewed beer… Each time is completely different. Join us for one of our neighborhood walks! CPC spends these afternoons with community advocates or organizations from the neighborhood we are exploring.
2019 Walk Dates:
February 24, April 28, June 23, August 25, October 27
Build winning parade floats. Design history themed scavenger hunts. Create costumes of your favorite buildings. Film comical videos with serious messages. Host a wake for a demolished building. We’ve spread the importance of preserving communities throughout greater Cincinnati through creating these projects and more.
Have an idea for us?
Advocacy at HCB
CPC positively and proactively advocates for the protection of our region’s architectural and historical heritage. We attend the city’s Historic Conservation Board hearings, often working in sync with Cincinnati Preservation Association and other preservationists, to speak on behalf of buildings slated for demolition.
Cincy Heart Bombs
Heart bombing is an idea born from the love of places. Every February, community minded groups across the country heart bomb the places that matter to them. These love letters to historic places appear at historic sites nationwide, on local landmarks, and around places both safe and threatened.
Every May we lead this slow ride. Along the route we highlight stories about neighborhoods, demolition sites, and ongoing preservation projects, including some of CPC's Impacts. So far CPC has organized 5 different routes that incorporate Downtown, Over-the-Rhine, West End, Queensgate, Walnut Hills, and Evanston.
