Description
According to Historic Mt. Auburn: Mt. Auburn is Cincinnati's first hilltop neighborhood and it was originally home to the wealthiest citizens who wanted to escape the overcrowded conditions of the city. Mt. Auburn offers panoramic views of Cincinnati, the Ohio River and Northern Kentucky. The houses date from 1819 and the most noteworthy is the William Howard Taft House, a National Historic Landmark and Cincinnati's only National Park site.
