Anne Delano Steinert has spent three decades as an educator, preservationist, and historian using buildings to connect the past and present as a path to a better future. She believes that buildings can bring communities together through story-telling and placemaking, and works to help communities uncover and celebrate stories embedded in physical space. Steinert is an urban historian and historic preservationist. She holds a Masters degree in historic preservation from Columbia University and a Masters in urban American history from the University of Cincinnati, where she is currently a doctoral candidate. She is the board chair of Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine Museum and she recently curated the award winning exhibition, Finding Kenyon Barr: Photographs of Cincinnati's Lost Lower West End. Steinert currently teaches local history courses at the University of Cincinnati and The History of Housing in America at Xavier University.
