Here’s a review of the questions:

  1. What was the original name of Mount Adams?
  2. What Cincy building was the first reinforced concrete frame building in the U.S.?
  3. What was banned in Cincinnati in 1979, had a one day exemption in 2002, and then allowed for good in 2004?

And here are the answers:

  1. Mount Ida. It is named after Ida Martin, a woman who lived in the hollow of an old sycamore tree located on a steep hill. The name was changed in 1843 after President John Quincy Adams arrived at Mount Ida to dedicate the Cincinnati Observatory.
  2. The Ingalls Building—Before this building, the tallest concrete building in the world was only six stories high. To construct the building, Melville Ingalls Henry Hooper used a system patented in 1884 by English engineer Ernest Ransome, the man who had designed and built the world’s first reinforced concrete bridge.
  3. Festival seating—In 1979, 11 people were crushed to death during a performance by The Who. Festival seating was banned but allowed again for one day for a Springsteen concert. In 2004 the ban was lifted for good.
