CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

FOX19 has teamed up with the Hamilton County Public Library to bring all of our fans a look back at great moments in Cincinnati history.

Starting with our city's founding in 1788, the historians at the library have dug deep into their extensive archives to provide our Facebook fans with photos and background for the events that moved Cincinnati.

Each event on our timeline includes photos and stories about what led to that particular moment in history.

We add new ones a few times a month. 

Here's a look at the list so far:

1812 - First Steamboat navigates Ohio River

1828 - Opening of the Cincinnati section of the Miami & Erie Canal

1834 - Lane Seminary Anti-Slavery Debates

1840 - Cincinnati becomes largest meat packing center

1848 - First photograph of Cincinnati taken

1849 - Breweries
