"A simple street that documents a piece of Cincinnati history"

Beecher St. in Walnut Hills is a single longish, tree-lined block that begins at McMillan and ends at Melrose Ave. While the neighborhood demographic is more multicultural than in the past, Beecher still has predominately African American residents. Along the street you'll find mostly apartment buildings and a few large, older homes. It's basic near-town Cincinnati, but it is also a reminder of Cincinnati History.

If you stand at the corner of Beecher St. and McMillan Ave. and face east, across the street you'll notice a large white house. That's the Harriet Beecher Stowe house: http://stowehousecincy.org/index.html , where the famed author lived with her family for nearly 20 years beginning in 1832. Stowe's experiences in that house motivated her to write "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Beecher St. was named in her honor.

There's not much to Beecher St., but there are hundreds of apartment units in that short stretch of pavement. One building houses seniors age 62+ with rent based on income. Christ Temple Baptist Church also has a modest building on Beecher.

Shopping
There aren't any shops on Beecher, but the basics: CVS Pharmacy, US Bank, Kroger Groceries, are within walking distance. For more shopping Downtown, Corryville, Clifton and CUF are a 10 minute drive.
