Preservation of History in Blue Ash – History Books
Blue Ash has published two books in commemoration of its history: History of Blue Ash, Ohio, 1791-1991, published in 1991 as a part of the City's Bicentennial celebration, and Celebrating Blue Ash in 2005, a supplemental book published in late 2005 covering the approximate 1990 through 2005 time period. Long-time area resident, historian, and journalist Mary Lou Rose authored both books with assistance from the City. Both books are quality hardbound, coffee-table style books. The 1991 book is available for purchase through the Municipal & Safety Center reception desk for a cost of $15. The 2005 books have all been sold, although the City is looking into the possibility of having additional books printed. Cost for the 1991 book is $15 (the required Ohio State sales tax is included in the price.) Call (513) 745-8500 with questions regarding these books.
Preservation of History in Blue Ash – Historic Hunt House
Another recent accomplishment that works to preserve Blue Ash's rich history is the City's acquisition and renovation of the historic Hunt House on Hunt Road near Victor Avenue. This home, built by one of Blue Ash's founding families (the Hunts) serves as a history museum for the City, with periodic tours scheduled for the public. (Check out the city’s calendar of events or call 745-8550 for information on tours.) The home was acquired by the City in late 2003, and first opened for tours in 2006.

Preservation of History in Blue Ash – Pioneer Cemetery
An historic cemetery is located in Blue Ash on the east and west sides of Plainfield Road near the Cooper Road intersection. This cemetery is no longer accepting burials, and has not for many years. The cemetery is public, and the owners of the adjacent Raymond Walters College ancilliary building (formerly used as the Sycamor Senior Center) generally do not object to persons parking in their lot to visit the cemetery.
This cemetery has not always been under the care of Blue Ash, as Sycamore Township maintained it and its related records for many years. However, today, Blue Ash does maintain this cemetery and has what limited records there are related to this cemetery in the City Manager's Office. Many persons related to Blue Ash's founding families are buried in the cemetery. Persons interested in learning more about this cemetery should call the City Manager's Office at (513) 745-8539, or E-mail email@example.com with questions.
