2015 Cincinnati Preservation Association House TourLast year my Dad and I went on the Cincinnati Preservation Association’s Spring Tour, and despite the torrential rainfall we had a fabulous day!  When I was contacted this year about promoting the event I jumped at the chance!  Last year we toured homes in Clifton, and this year the tour is happening in the historic heart of North Avondale.  There are so many architectural gems in this area and I cannot wait to take the tour again and dream for a day about living in a gorgeous home of yesteryear.  This is a popular event, so I highly recommend getting your tickets early.  This would make for a perfect daytime date, or a Mother’s Day treat.

Cincinnati Preservation’s Spring Hour Tour Features Historic Homes on Rose Hill Avenue

Cincinnati Preservation Association’s 2015 Spring House Tour features six historic homes, including a condo in the Belvedere, on Rose Hill Avenue in North Avondale on Saturday, May 9 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. 

North Avondale is one of Cincinnati’s most architecturally distinguished neighborhoods. In the mid-1800s large tracts of land were subdivided and wealthy merchants and manufacturers began building large homes on spacious lots.  Businessmen such as Andrew Erkenbrecher, Samuel Pogue, Frank Herschede, and Barney Kroger built homes on the neighborhood’s winding tree-lined streets.  Today historic homes in North Avondale range from the 1890s to 1930s and are still some of finest examples of residential architecture in the city featuring Italian Renaissance, English Medieval, and Greek Revival styles.

Cost is $25.00 for CPA members and $35.00 for guests/nonmembers. Tickets are $35 for everyone if purchased on the day of the tour. Cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard are welcome.
