The James A. Ramage Civil War Museum

The Mission of The James A. Ramage Civil War Museum is to inform visitors about the defense of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati during the Civil War and how the community came together to defend the area during this critical period in our nation's history. The Museum preserves and interprets Northern Kentucky's unique role in the Civil War through archaeology, education and research. The Museum also informs visitors about the history of the City of Fort Wright and its neighboring communities.

The Museum needs volunteers who like serving the community, the Civil War, local history or who just want something new and fun to do to help us. We have several opportunities for volunteers, including staffing the museum and greeting guests, helping run our special events, working on special educational programs and more.

Findlay Market Organization 1

We Provide Community Service in form of a Fresh Produce Market to Local Merchants and Shoppers in Over-the-Rhine Community.

Project Needs- Food-Stamp- Token Dispenser - Electrical - Mechanical Dispenser- Automating the dispensing of food stamp tokens would make the service

more convenient and discrete for the customer and less expensive for our farmers market. Food stamp shoppers could buy tokens whenever the market is open from a machine rather than from a person. The Corporation would not have to staff a cashiering station as it does now during some farmers market hours of operation. There are several manufacturers of token dispensing machinery for the arcade, golf course, car wash, and coin-op laundry industries. Some of that machinery is designed to accept payment by credit card but, at this time, none will accept payment by debit or other cards requiring PIN number authorization. We are continuing to investigate after-market modification of a token dispensing machine for the farmers market EBT program.
