Spring is my favorite season, and May is my favorite month. And the Cincinnati Preservation Association Spring House Tour is one of my favorite springtime traditions! My dad and I have been attending this tour for several years now, and we have seen some of the most amazing architecture in our area. We love visiting the homes and churches and learning more about the rich history of Greater Cincinnati. I always come away from this tour with a better appreciation of and more knowledge about our area. And the tour also makes me think about things I want to change at my own home. We always make a day of it on the day of the CPA House Tour. We find a new to us restaurant in the same area as the tour to have a nice lunch to fuel us up for the walking tour.
The Cincinnati Preservation Association Spring House Tour happens in May and tickets are on sale now for this event. Make this one of your favorite Spring traditions this year!

The homes include a 1940s Cape Cod, a late 19th century Victorian frame-and-shingle residence once owned by the LaRosa family, a Tudor Revival with an asymmetrical facade, and an American Foursquare.
