The Jam has been held  there for about 18 years, making it the longest running Blues Jam in the Cincinnati area,  if not one of the longest running Jam in the whole country.

It started with the founders of  the Cincinnati Blues Society as an after-meeting Jam and has continued on ever since.  Nearly every Blues Band in the Cincy area can trace their roots to the  Mansion Hill Blues Jam.
