Description: Illustration of the First Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati, from "Historical Collections of Ohio" by Henry Howe, 1847. The caption accompanying the illustration reads in part:"The engraving represents the first Presbyterian Church as it appeared in February, 1847. In the following spring it was taken down and the materials used for the construction of several dwellings in the western part of Cincinnati then called Texas. The greater proportion of the timber was found to be perfectly sound. The site was on Vine street just above where now is the Arcade. In 1791 a number of the inhabitants formed themselves into a company to escort the Rev. James Kemper from beyond the Kentucky River to Cincinnatl and, after his arrival, a subscription was set on foot to build this church, which was erected in 1792." View on Ohio Memory.

Description: A photo of Herbert Bigelow, born in Elkhart, Indiana, on January 4, 1870. He attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, and Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, before graduating from the latter institution in 1894.

Women's Christian Temperance Union Headquarters photographSave
Description: Women's Christian Temperance Union Headquarters, Lancaster Camp Ground, ca. 1900-1909. In 1874, a group of Cleveland women established the Women's Christian Temperance Union. This organization pressured the Ohio and federal governments to implement Prohibition, which would outlaw the production, sale, and consumption of alcohol. From the mid 1870s to the early 1890s, the Women's Christian Temperance Union was the major organization within the United States seeking Prohibition. Its members utilized rather extreme tactics to convince Americans to abstain from alcohol. Members picketed bars and saloons, prayed for the souls of the bar patrons, and also tried to block the entryways of establishments that sold liquor. By the 1890s, groups such as the American Anti-Saloon League had joined the Women's Christian Temperance Union in its push for Prohibition. View on Ohio Memory.
