November 10th marks the 170th anniversary of the laying of the Observatory’s cornerstone by John Quincy Adams and the naming of the hill upon which the Observatory was built to “Mt. Adams.” Celebrate this Cincinnati milestone at the “new” Observatory in Mt. Lookout.

Discover how the citizens of Cincinnati founded the nation's first public astronomical observatory and why John Quincy Adams was so interested in what was happening here in Cincinnati. Explore why we had to move the telescope from Mt. Adams to Mt. Lookout in 1873. Mt. Lookout is also named for the Observatory and is 140 years old this year. That’s right, two of Cincinnati’s seven hills are named because of our telescope.

Whether you're an astronomer, engineer or history buff, you'll find the Observatory has something for all.
