CINCINNATI (March 2, 2012)- First Lady Michelle Obama made a private visit to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center at The Banks late last week. The unannounced, private visit gave the First Lady a view of the museum, Cincinnati’s riverfront and The Banks development.
The importance of the museum’s location along the river and at The Banks was a topic that Freedom Center tour guides discussed with their special guest. Several other VIPs visited The Banks that day as well. Members of the local and national press were on hand and waited at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at The Banks as the First Lady finished a fundraiser in downtown Cincinnati and prepared to visit the area.
This marked the first time the FirstLady had visited the riverfront area of Cincinnati, and we are proud she got a firsthand look at The Banks.
