Hauck Society

Housed in an office building in downtown Cincinnati from 1942-1951, the Civic Garden Center moved to its current home in Avondale in 1951 when Cornelius J. Hauck generously donated land from his beautiful “Sooty Acres” property. In keeping with the spirit of Mr. Hauck’s generosity, the Civic Garden Center recognizes the major financial contributions of $1,000+ with year-long membership in its Hauck Society. We invite you to become a Hauck Society member today.
