Historic Hunt House renovations complete;
Open House in April

The City of Blue Ash is pleased to announce the renovations of the Historic Hunt House are complete and a reopening event will be held in April. 

The home has been undergoing extensive repairs due to damage to floor joists and roof rafters caused by wood-boring beetles. 

An Open House is scheduled for April 9 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Hunt House, 4364 Hunt Road. The occasion will also mark the 36th anniversary of the Blue Ash Historical Society.

The event will be open to the public and refreshments will be served. Read more.

When winter weather strikes, remember to slow down, use caution, and give the plows plenty of space to maneuver. See the video of the crews getting ready for the January 6 snowfall on Facebook.
