Early Years in Cincinnati

In 1857, a small group of Sisters of the Good Shepherd arrived in Cincinnati from Louisville, KY, where they had first come in 1842 at the request of Bishop Flaget.   The Sisters shared Mrs. Sarah Peter's residence for a time, then moved into a frame structure at the corner of Bank and Baymiller Streets that had been the homestead of the Ganos, a prominent Cincinnati Catholic family.

Gano Homestead, Bank and Baymiller St., Cincinnati, OH, later moved to Carthage, OH
