Historic New Richmond Walking and Bus Tour

Join the Delhi Historical Society on Saturday, May 20th when we hit the road to learn about New Richmond, Ohio! Located about twenty miles east of Cincinnati on the shore of the Ohio River, the town’s history was known as a center of commerce and for its abolition movement during the 19th century. Steamboat traffic brought in many visitors and exported many goods, making the town’s businesses very successful. There are also many notable local stories that came from this town. Whether it was starting a school in the 1830s that was open to all students regardless of race and sex or publishing a risky abolitionist newspaper, many citizens made history as abolitionist and freedom defenders. New Richmond has two nationally recognized Underground Railroad Network to Freedom sites. Join us to learn more about our Eastside neighbors!
