I'm totally crushing on Walnut Hills lately. On Sunday I walked around Peebles Corner a bit. The interesction of Gilbert Avenue and East McMillan Street was named 'Peebles Corner' for the Peebles Grocery, founded by Joseph Peebles and located on the northeast corner. (I have seen one reference to it being located on the southwest corner, but images make me think the northeast corner location is correct.)
The corner is a National Register Historic District.
