Carol Sampson - Private Guide in Cincinnati
I have been a nationally Certified Tourism Ambassador since 2015. I have a passion for all things Cincinnati, but I am especially passionate about ghost signs, or the fading advertisements that are visible on buildings.
I have volunteered at various events throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, including the 2012 World Choir Games, Cincinnati USA Visitor Center, and Findlay Market.
In Cincinnati, as in any city, there is plethora of ghost signs waiting to be discovered, and these fading advertisements uncover untold Cincinnati history. For me, ghost signs allow me to not only be my own urban archaeologist, but also share my new discoveries with visitors and natives alike. Ghost signs have become points of interest in the past decade, and there will growing interest for these signs for years to come. I am determined to bring more Cincinnati history alive by talking about these ghost signs.
I am happy to share with visitors my passion & knowledge of neighborhoods such as Camp Washington and Over-The-Rhine, but I am willing to show visitors whatever they wish to learn.
