Special Notice Under Covid19 Pandemic

Promont and ALL GMAHS activities are currently closed or cancelled through May 2020 due to the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and mandates from the state of Ohio to assist Public Health and safety.

We are implementing very limited office hours at this time. Please email or call if you need us. You can find email addresses and our phone number at the end of this message.

You are welcome to drive through and grab a book (or leave a book) from our Little Free Library. Our goal is to provide historical fiction and nonfiction books and we appreciate anyone who can share the same with the community.

You are welcome to the grounds of Promont to sit outdoors and have a picnic lunch, read, or take a walk (especially helpful for the kids!). We encourage all to enjoy some fresh air & exercise during this time. We only ask that you stay safe & respectful of the property and each other, limit your group size, and distance yourself from others.

Promont/GMAHS named Best of the East 2020!

Thank you to everyone who voted for Promont as Best Historical Site/Museum in the East!! We certainly couldn’t claim “The Best” without all of the amazing support our community shows us in the giving of their time, money, and recommendations to others. We had such a great time at the Best of the East event with many friends and fellow Milford businesses in attendance, and nominated, themselves. We would like to congratulate All of our neighbors who can now boast they are the Best of the East!

Please come on up to Promont on Sundays, from 1-4pm, to learn why we are named the Best Historical Site/Museum in the East and also to visit our newly remodeled gift shop filled with treasures, trinkets, and local history! We’ll see you soon!

Promont is open for house tours every Sunday from 1-4pm March through December

$5 admission/$1 child.  Tours also by appointment, call 513/248-0324 to schedule.

Visit us at the beautiful “house on the hill” and explore the 1865 Victorian Italianate mansion, Promont, which has been restored to the period of 1865-1906 when Governor Pattison and his family lived here. Our docents will guide you on a tour of the house, from the grand hall on the first floor to the top of the observation tower overlooking the City of Milford, whose history in pictures and other articles line the winding, 4-story tower staircase.

After you tour the house, peruse the gift shop filled with unique gifts and mementos. We have local history books on Milford and Clermont County for sale, art & photography prints, stationery, tea, and other gift items. Enjoy quiet contemplation as you walk the grounds or sit a spell in the shade of the house or many trees and enjoy a spot of quiet beauty amongst a busy little City. Browse the book you bought or brought or found in our Little Free Library. Or bring some lunch. Or your art supplies… Whatever your pleasure, Promont is a quiet, inspiring place to enjoy it!

We’ll see you soon!
