Here’s a review of the questions:
- What is the name of the racetrack located 12 miles southwest of Cincinnati in Florence, KY?
- Originally known as “Delta,” this neighborhood in Eastern Cincinnati is considered one of the most desirable in the city. Featuring a lively town square, hiking trails in Ault Park and Zip’s Café, home of the “best burgers in the city.” What is its name?
- Located in Lebanon, OH, it is the oldest hotel in Ohio. It has hosted many famous luminaries, including twelve American Presidents, and was the site of a 2008 campaign stop by Republican Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates John McCain & Sarah Palin. What hotel is it?
And here are the answers:
- Turfway Park opened in 1959 as Latonia Racecourse. It currently conducts two meets per year – Holiday (December) and Winter/Spring (January to April). Aside from its status as the eleventh ranked racetrack in North America, it is the home of “Jeff Ruby Steaks,” a nine-furlong contest named after the famous Cincinnati restaurateur.
- Mt. Lookout was annexed to the city of Cincinnati in 1870. The name was changed from “Delta” to Mt. Lookout to honor the “lookout” at the Cincinnati Observatory. Today the observatory is recognized as a national landmark and home of the oldest working telescope in the United States. The Mt. Lookout neighborhood, located 10 minutes from downtown, is hilly and charming, not as trendy as some of the neighborhoods surrounding it, and simply a great place to live!
- Besides their Presidential guests, the Golden Lamb has housed and served American legends Neil Armstrong and Annie Oakley; literary greats Charles Dickens, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Alex Haley, James Whitcomb Riley, Louis Bromfield and Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain); movie star Charles Laughton; and pop singer Kesha. Offering fourth floor “museum rooms” that tell the story of the building’s 215-year history, the Golden Lamb is fully operational today as a boutique hotel, fine-dining restaurant, and tavern.
