Mt. Adams incline in Cincinnati
Description: Original description reads: "The incline transports passengers from the top of Mt. Adams to the business section of the city." Overlooking downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River for more than 200 years, historic Mt. Adams has shared a rich and fascinating history with the City of Cincinnati. Named after President John Quincy Adams, who in 1843 delivered the dedication address for what was then known as the world’s most powerful observatory (now site of the Monastery), the Hill has long enjoyed a tradition of fine wine, art and entertainment. In 1880, the Incline was modified to transport streetcars, resulting in a continuous route from downtown to Mt. Adams. The incline was closed in 1948, making it Cincinnati's last working incline.
