Help Cincinnati’s Icons Reach the Finish Line

May 1, 2015 by Jennifer Sandy

Over the past year, we have seen an incredible outpouring of support for Cincinnati’s Icons. Nearly 25,000 people from across the country have engaged with the National Trust’s campaign to save these historic buildings for future generations.

We celebrated a huge win in November when Hamilton County voters approved a sales tax increase to support the rehabilitation of Union Terminal. However, Music Hall is still in need of critical preservation funding.

Today, we’d like to share some great news –$57 million in private funding has been raised in support of Music Hall’s first rehabilitation in 40 years, including a recent major gift from the Lindner Family. The project is now only $10 million short of reaching its total goal, and you can help! Donations are being accepted online by the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.

It has been less than a year since Music Hall and Union Terminal were included on the National Trust’s annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. These icons have made remarkable progress. Now it’s time to show your support again and help Cincinnati’s Icons reach the finish line!

URGENT: Contact your Senators asking them to pass the Route 66 National Historic Trail Designation Act before 2019!
