Our Legacy - In 1903, two sisters named Georgia and Florence Trader recognized the need for a home that would enable women who are blind to engage in activities that would bring independence and empowerment to their lives. The Trader sisters appealed to William Procter, a prominent Cincinnati businessman and head of The Procter & Gamble Company, who offered to purchase Cary Cottage and the surrounding acreage for the sisters to open the first home for women who were blind in the state of Ohio. More than 100 years later, Clovernook Center has evolved into a multi-faceted organization with services for both men and women and a skilled staff to address daily living and employment needs for people with visual impairments. Our mission is to empower people who are blind and visually impaired to be self-sufficient and full participants in their communities. Cary Cottage, built in 1832, remains on the property as a historical site and functions as a museum. For tours, please call 513-522-3860.
