Description:
"Located on an esplanade between Elm and Race Streets, Findlay Market is the last remaining municipal market building in Cincinnati. The market was named after General James Findlay (1770-1836), a veteran of the War of 1812 and a mayor of Cincinnati. Construction of Findlay Market began in 1852. The earlier markets were located in the heart of the city, closer to the river, but then city officials saw a need to provide convenient shopping facilities for the growing northern and western parts of the basin. While the other ones were of frame or brick construction, City Civil Engineer Alfred West Gilbert (1816-1900) directed one of his draftsmen, probably James Stewart, to design a more durable iron building here."
