Grandview Heights Timeline

You are about to experience technology and history at its finest!! The Grandview Heights Marble Cliff Historical Society and the Grandview Heights Public Library have partnered to give you history to enjoy — at your fingertips! We are very proud of this project. It has taken many hours, and will take many more. It is our gift to all, to be able to scroll through time on your mobile device or computer. We hope you love it as much as we do. This Timeline will be ever expanding and changing, so be sure to visit often. The Timeline is also meant to be interactive. We always welcome new donations to our archives, and not only will they be safely entrusted to the Society, but will help us to build on this very valuable project.

Harding School

The Harding School was constructed on a site on Fairview Avenue just north of First Avenue in 1895, replacing the original Walcutt School located near Grandview Avenue and Dublin Road. The new building originally had two rooms on the south side, and was expanded to four rooms sandwiching the tall central tower in 1898. After the construction of what is now Edison School in 1911, it was used as Grandview High School until the current high school building was built in 1923 (the first high school class graduated in 1916.) The tower contained a large brass bell, which was melted and used in the war effort after the building was razed in 1930. The entire building was sold as scrap for $300. The former Kindergarten Annex now sits on the site of the Harding School.

Titanic disaster

The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. She carried 2,224 passengers and crew, but only enough lifeboats for 1,178 people. Just under two hours after Titanic foundered, the passenger liner RMS Carpathia arrived on the scene of the sinking, where she brought aboard an estimated 705 survivors. The death toll has been estimated to have been between 1,490 and 1,635 people.

Fall of the Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall -- a barrier constructed by East Germany in the 1960s -- completely cut off West Berlin from East Berlin and surrounding East Germany until November 9, 1989, when East Germany announced its citizens could visit West Berlin and West Germany. Crowds of East Germans crossed over the wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere. The physical wall was primarily destroyed in 1990. The fall of the Berlin Wall paved the way for German reunification, which was formally concluded on October 3, 1990.

Grandview Schools

The south wing on the Edison School and the Grandview Heights High School gym were ready for use. The gym was built to honor the Grandview boys who served in WWII.
