See history in the re-making at Clifton's historic McDonald Estate Carriage House. The two-story stone carriage house is all that remains of the historic, Hannaford-designed estate home built in the 1880's for Alexander McDonald, entrepreneur and supporter of Cincinnati's arts, culture and education.

The Clifton Cultural Arts Center was awarded a $3,500 grant from the Fine Arts Fund to support the core design phase of the McDonald Carriage House conducted by KZF Design. CCAC was one of thirty-three local arts and community organizations to receive a Project Support Grant during the first allocation period of 2006. Project Support Grants are awarded twice annually and support arts programming and initiatives by organizations not receiving operating support from the Fine Arts Fund....

The McDonald Carriage House received some much needed TLC on Saturday, June 3, 2006, thanks to approximately 35 generous volunteers. CCAC Board members, Fairview parents, community volunteers, and employees of partners Messer Construction and KZF Design rolled up their sleeves and cleaned out decades' worth of accumulated debris from inside the Carriage House. Outside, overgrown honeysuckle and other vines and growth were cleared from around the building.

The Clifton Cultural Arts Center was awarded $7,500 in grant funds from the Fine Arts Fund through their Project Support Grant program to support a pre-campaign fundraising study for the Clifton Cultural Arts Center building renovations. The study is being conducted by local fundraising consultancy Smith Beers Yunker. 2005 is the first year CCAC has applied for the Project Support Grant. The grants are awarded twice annually and support arts programming and initiatives by organizations not receiving operating support from the Fine Arts Fund.
