See the original Rookwood Pottery, the Passionist Monastery, Cincinnati’s oldest Irish pub and the site of the Mount Adams Inclined Plane Railroad. Why did John Quincy Adams visit Mount Adams in 1843 and why isn’t tequila served at the City View Tavern, Mount Adam’s oldest saloon? Our guides, all residents of Mount Adams, will tell you why.
