CINCINNATI - The Tri-State is home to many fascinating facts, offbeat oddities, and "I did not know that" moments. With that in mind, WCPO asks, "Who Knew?"
It’s hard to imagine a cityscape without grand towers gracing the skyline.
Before there was Great American Tower, before Carew, the unassuming 210-foot-tall Ingalls Building at Fourth and Vine streets was not just the first high-rise to be built in Cincinnati. It was also the first of its kind in the world.
Skeptics were sure that the new building -- made of reinforced concrete -- would collapse.
WCPO Insiders can read how the builder kept that from happening.
