Based upon 20 years of research by historian Jane Stotts, this book tells the facts behind the creation and growth of today's Cincinnati Nature Center. It's all inside - the unique personalities whose visions became Krippendorf Property, Long Branch Farm and Groesbeck Estate. From pioneer days to modern times, the history of each distinctive property is told. Through the words of participants, rare and previously unpublished photographs, and the memories of descendants, this account provides the rationale for preserving these properties. The result is a coming of age story, a "prequel," of how three properties combined to establish one of America's preeminent nature centers.
