After nearly 159 years, Findlay Market keeps charm, edge

CINCINNATI -- Its sights, sounds and smells have been a part of Over-the-Rhine for nearly 160 years.

Last week, state and local officials, along with community dignitaries, gathered to celebrate a decade since Findlay Market’s last major renovation in 2004.

Donated to the city by a trust established by the market’s namesake, Gen. James Findlay, the market has seen three major renovations in its long history, a history that outdates other regional icons such as the Roebling Suspension Bridge, Music Hall, the Cincinnati Reds and the Ingalls Building. (The last is the first reinforced concrete high-rise in the nation, still located at 4th and Vine streets.)
