History of Farming in Northside
In the 1950's Northside had a greenhouse/farming area known as Frogtown which consisted of three large greenhouses located near Spring Grove Cemetery along Crawford and Spring Lawn Avenues. The area was nicknamed frogtown because of the natural springs that were the home to prevalent croaking frogs. The original families  the Kock's, Kissel's and Hoeweller's had over 6 acres of gardens under glass in the area. The Kissel's stopped gardening in the 1980's, however, the Koch's still garden and reside in Frogtown today.
In the 1880's through the early 1950's dairy farms were located along West Fork Road and Kirby Avenue in Northside. Ammon Avenue, off of Colerain, is named for one of the early dairy farmers - Johann Georg Ammon who passed away in 1891. Bosse Dairy, Henry Meyer Dairy, Blessing Dairy and John T. Ruether Dairy were a few of the various dairy farms in Northside. Today a few Northside residents still remember receiving home deliveries of milk. Dann Woellert's book titled, 'Cincinnati's Northside Neighborhood' in the Images of America Series has more.
