Village Directory Update

It’s time to update the Village Directory again.   The current directory was published in the spring of 2015, and since then, a lot has changed in Terrace Park.    Please help our volunteers gather the current information for your listing.   Even if nothing has changed since the last directory, let us know so we can keep our records as accurate as possible.

And, thanks for helping us keep this resource available to our neighborhood.

“Terrace Park With Love”

In 1990, Board Member Emeritus and long-time Terrace Park resident, Susan Frank, produced this charming video about life in Terrace Park. The video was only available as a dvd for many years, but we have updated the format so that we could make it available here. You can now view or download the entire video here – it’s about an hour in length. Check out this journey to the past and see what has changed and what is very much the same in Terrace Park since 1990!

An Evening at the Theater

Braving snow and cold, members of the Terrace Park Historical Society turned out for an evening at the Walton Creek Theater, to commemorate the Terrace Park Players and to take in a performance of the play “Mornings at Seven” by the Mariemont Players.

We were pleased that one of the original creative forces from Terrace Park’s theater group was able to be with us – Pat Matchette composed and directed many of the musical numbers from the Terrace Park Players repertoire. The display in the background chronicles the story of the Players and the many creative personalities who made the group a success.

From the late 1950’s through the 1980’s, Terrace Park had a very active community theater which in its heyday produced two plays, a musical, a musical revue and a pops concert nearly every year. Using primarily Terrace Park talent, this group staged productions at the school, the Community House and the Village Green.

There was even an original bicentennial extravaganza with a cast and crew of nearly 250 called 200, By George which was performed outdoors three July nights at the Log Cabin and was seen by about 1400 people sitting in bleachers.

Also on dispaly were posters designed by a youthful Mark Eberhard, set designs worthy of the Aronoff Center, photos of some amazing costumes, and programs listing so many of our talented neighbors.
