CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

FOX19 has teamed up with the Hamilton County Public Library to bring all of our fans a look back at great moments in Cincinnati history.

Starting with our city's founding in 1788, the historians at the library have dug deep into their extensive archives to provide our Facebook fans with photos and background for the events that moved Cincinnati.

Each event on our timeline includes photos and stories about what led to that particular moment in history.

We add new ones a few times a month.
