impressive are those buildings in the old area, they're ones with character and the houses in the residential areas as well.
thanks for this photo tour.

Whoa, Chad! Lots of really wonderful apartment blocks I see in Clifton Heights... and I see mixed use development as well! Superb shots yet again indeed! Question: what is that field shot you've taken in one of your pics that looks like a football practice field? And by the way, I notice that Ohio Avenue is lively as well... makes me truly want to either walk around or live there, that's for sure!

The style is called Italianate. Cincinnati has the largest collection of Italianate structures in the country.

Mount Auburn sure looks like one of the more affluent neighborhoods of Cincinnati to me, with all the open spaces, wonderful brick facades, outdoor verandas (on two of the houses), wide windows, wonderful arched entrances... I really can easily say that I picture myself living in that mostly squared house! What is that rock marker on two of your pics by the way? And that house that looks like a castle on the second to your last image really shows the unique nature and charm of the community.

Splendid takes yet again, Chad! Lovely community indeed!

Mt. Auburn, like many of the neighborhoods on the Hills surrounding Cincy was once a wealthy area, now it's more working class. Here's a link

The stone structure in the second pic is a memorial to Friedrich Ludwig Jahn at Inwood Park. Here's a link

Cincy, being the most German big city in the state has many memorials to many famous Germans and German-Americans.

For those of you wondering, demand for residential housing south of Liberty Street in OTR far exceeds supply. Apartments stay on the market for a matter of days, if not hours. 188 of 3CDC's 189 condos have been sold.

Spring Gove Cemetery. Spring Grove Village. Cincinnati. Jan 19th, 2013.

Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum (733 acres) is a nonprofit garden cemetery and arboretum located at 4521 Spring Grove Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the second largest cemetery in the United States and is recognized as a U.S. National Historic Landmark.

History

The cemetery dates from 1844, when members of the Cincinnati Horticultural Society formed a cemetery association. They took their inspiration from contemporary rural cemeteries such as Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, and Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. On December 1, 1844 Salmon P. Chase and others prepared the Articles of Incorporation. The cemetery was formally chartered on January 21, 1845, and the first burial took place on September 1, 1845. In 1855 Adolph Strauch, a renowned landscape architect, was hired to renovate the grounds. His sense and layout of the "garden cemetery", made of lakes, trees and shrubs, is what visitors today still see. In 1987, the association officially changed its name to "Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum" to better represent its remarkable collection of both native and exotic trees, as well as its State and National Champion Trees.

On March 29, 2007, the cemetery was designated a National Historic Landmark.

Notable burials

-Salmon P. Chase, Chief Justice of the United States

-Henry Stanberry, Attorney General of the United States

-Alphonso Taft, politician, father of William Howard Taft

-Louise Taft, second wife of Alphonso Taft, and mother of President of the United States William Howard Taft

-Charles Phelps Taft II, Mayor of Cincinnati and son of President William Howard Taft

-John McLean, Associate Justice of the United States

-Stanley Matthews, Associate Justice of the United States

-William Procter and James Gamble, founders of Procter and Gamble

-Bernard Kroger, founder of Kroger supermarkets

-Joseph Hooker, Civil War general and commander of the Army of the Potomac at the Battle of Chancellorsville

-George Hunt Pendleton, Congressman and a Senator from Ohio
