Union Baptist Cemetery is tucked away in a quiet spot off Cleves-Warsaw Road on the border between Price Hill and Covedale.

It’s the oldest Baptist African American cemetery in Cincinnati, run by the oldest surviving black Baptist congregation in the city.

It’s also a monument to at least 120 free black men. During the Civil War, they took up arms and fought as soldiers against a Confederate army that would have kept their people in bondage.

Local music, artists, food and drink vendors, kid's activities and more will all be part of this year's Bend in the River Art & Music Festival at The Sanctuary in Lower Price Hill. Elaine Diehl has a quick preview of all the fun happening on May 18.

For some Price Hill residents ShotSpotter can't come soon enough. Cincinnati Police will deploy the technology in June in an effort to decrease gun violence. It's already working in Avondale, where officers have seen a 50% decrease in the number of people shot.

Cincinnati Council is expected to approve funding next week for Price Hill to use ShotSpotter. It's the technology that allows police to pinpoint the source of gunfire. It's already in Avondale, and police say it's reduced the number of people shot in there by 52 percent.

Art and music have long been drivers for community development and there's a celebration of this coming to Price Hill on August 3 & 4. 

Applications for the next Artist-in-Residence for this summer's Price Hill Creative Community Festival are now available.

In the summer of 2017, Cincy Stories was on the move. The non-profit, which hosts storytelling events, relocated its "Story Gallery" from the Walnut Hills neighborhood to a new storefront in Price Hill. Over the next few months, Executive Director Shawn Braley and Creative Director Chris Ashwell captured 60 stories from the people living in the neighborhood.

Last week, Tales from the Trail introduced you to some famous eateries that have become must-stops for candidates running for office in Ohio – from candidates for county offices to the presidency. There are so many such places in Ohio, dishing out chili, piergoies, ice cream, hot dogs and hamburgers that we felt a "part two" was needed. And, in fact, there are so many, that Tales From the Trail may revisit the subject in the future. Here are some more dining spots that make up the political map of Ohio:

  One of Cincinnati’'s oldest neighborhoods, Price Hill, was once praised as the city'’s most popular and distinctive suburb. Commonly divided into East Price Hill, West Price Hill, and Lower Price Hill, the area covers over 6 square miles. Like many neighborhoods, Price Hill has experienced its ups and downs, but its residents are proactive in targeting problems and working together to make their community a better place to live.
