On March 25, the City of Hamilton publicly marked the 100th anniversary of the Great Miami River Flood of 1913 with a ceremony at Butler County Courthouse. In 1913, the courthouse had been a major site of refuge from the waters, as well as a morgue for victims of the catastrophe. 100 years later, Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller presented citations to the Mayors of several local cities, honoring the role of their communities in coming to Hamilton’s humanitarian aid.
