The Over-the-Rhine Museum, which is currently in its planning and development stage, is modeled on the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City. The founder of the Tenement Museum, Ruth J. Abram, is in Cincinnati to give a presentation at a sold-out event tonight at the Mercantile Library.

Ms. Abram also founded theInternational Coalition of Sites of Conscience, and the National Women’'s Agenda and Coalition. In 2014, she founded Behold! New Lebanon, the nation’'s first living museum of contemporary rural American life. Historian and Preservationist Ruth J. Abram joins us to discuss her life and work.
