Betts House

416 Clark Street

Cincinnati, OH 45203

Love the hidden beauty of Over-the-Rhine? Uplifted by the preservation of our architectural treasures? Wondering how young people view OTR?   Come to the Betts House to take a fresh look at OTR, offered in our unique photo exhibit, Through the Lens! If you are like most Cincinnatians, you know that we have a great collection of historic buildings in OTR and you also know that in recent years it has suffered from some decay. So, seriously, come down and check out OTR through a different perspective: Jackson Brewery, photographed by Dave Parks, is an immense historic structure, that will soon be transformed into a new brewery and concert venue, PLUS  ”Real Lies, Real Eyes & Realize”  is an insightful array of photos  from New Voices, produced by Prairie, Inc., in which high school students were paired up with social service clients to produce photographs of OTR and reflective narratives on their collaborative experience in the community. Not your average walk through OTR, eh?
