Oakley Racetrack, 18889-1905
The Oakley Racetrack opened in 1889 and closed shortly after a new law prohibited gambling in 1905. The track was most recognizable by the domes on its grandstand. Parts of the former club house remain and are now part of a private residence.
Backstory and Context
Today, Oakley is a major "crosstown artery" of Cincinnati. What was once home to a racetrack and several factories are now retail and residential areas.
