Glendale exhibit highlights four decades of change

A unique photo exhibit showing changes in the Glendale Historic District over the past 38 years will be on display this Saturday and Sunday from 11 A.M.-3 P.M. at Glendale Town Hall, located at 80 E Sharon Avenue.

"The Glendale Historic District Then and Now – 1976 to 2013", presented by ‎Glendale Heritage Preservation, features "before and after" images of 500 homes in the village's historic district and shows how many buildings have been lost, built, or remodeled over nearly four decades.

The exhibit is the work of Glendale Heritage Preservation founder Doreen Gove and trustee Bob Galbraith.

The "before" images were collected in the 1970s as part of the National Register of Historic Places nomination process. The 392-acre district, which includes 439 contributing buildings, was listed on the National Register in 1976 and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

Formed in 1974, Glendale Heritage Preservation is headquartered in the village square in the former Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Railroad depot.
