Ohio Guide Photographs
Description: Original description reads: "Walnut Hill high school, Cincinnati, Ohio 1936." Beginning as a neighborhood school in 1895, Walnut Hills High School took a new direction toward preparing students for college admission in the liberal arts starting in 1918. On September 8, 1931, a new, larger building located on Victory Parkway was dedicated. The inspiration for the design of the new school was the Library Building of the University of Virginia and Monticello, both the work of Thomas Jefferson. Walnut Hills High School continues on at this same location, utilizing the original building, albeit with major additions. View on Ohio Memory.
