The Harmony Hill Association of Williamsburg has received a $2000 grant from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) to fund additional handicap facilities at the recently constructed carriage house at its historical site at 299 South 3rd Street.

The Harmony Hill Association is a non-profit organization, formed in 1997 to promote, support, nurture and preserve Clermont County’s historical heritage through educational, historical, recreational and cultural activities, with the main focus being on the Williamsburg community and the Williamsburg Elementary School, sponsoring field trips and special programs for Third and Fourth Grade students throughout the year.

The GCF grant will be used to provide handicap facilities for those visiting the museum, the historical site and those wishing to use the Williamsburg-Batavia bike hike trail. Harmony Hill is a designated terminus for the trail.
