I just covered this whole picture-thread and am most impressed. Most of the architecture is very characterful and significant, as is the OTR area. I would like to visit Cincinnati and the mid-west one day soon.

I wonder if they've ever considered re-instating the original German names, as has happened elsewhere? German migration to America has been huge (probably the biggest group), and as was stated in the opening blurb, many Germans had to anglicize their names because of the war, so contrary to what many people believe, all anglo surnames are not really reflective of the true ancestry of many Americans today, far from it from what I've read.

Great coverage Chadoh.

Great thread and I must say that Cincinnati is a real eye opener. I had no idea that it would look like this!

I've really got to explore more of the United States.

Thanks, I'm happy to hear you've enjoyed my little tour. And yes, in both Columbus and Cincy we have attempted to get the street names changed back. Unfortunatelt we haven't had much luck. I belong to the Germania here in Columbus and the excuse we get from City Hall is always that to revert back to the German names would be to expensive and not really high on the city's priority list. My guess is Cincy is pretty much the same. IWe've even gone as far as to suggest using both names. I'd love to see both Whittier and Schiller on the street sugns when I go down to German Village here in Columbus!

Yeah, they are lovely. We also still do Mass every Sunday at 11:00 AM at Old St. Marys in OTR. I've gone twice and had a very nice time. We also have a beer hall in the basement of the church, which of course we utilize after mass! lol

Westend. December 11, 2011. Part One

The Dayton Street Historic District was the was once known as "Millionaire’s Row" in Cincinnati, Ohio and is known for its 19th-century Italianate houses. It is located in Cincinnati's historic Old West End neighborhood. It is bounded by Bank Street, Poplar Street, Linn Street, and Winchell Avenue. The District was listed on January 25, 1973.

The Dayton Street Historic District area is a homogenous, series of blocks, containing a group of representative 19th century detached town houses. The area was once the 19th-century residential area for wealthy beer brewers and pork packers of Cincinnati. The majority of the buildings were erected between 1850 and 1890, and they are generally masonry, two- or three-story Italianate-style homes. Low decorative wrought iron fences and stone posts add to the area's strong sense of time and place.

The Hauck House Museum is located at 812 Dayton Street and the Mayor George Hatch House is located at 830 Dayton Street.













Sadly, it's not good in the hood. I often try to picture how beautiful the surrounding streets once were.

Thanks guys! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed my little tour. Despite the sterotypes, Cincy isn't the sprawling ghetto the media, both local and national, seem to suggest it is. There are many lovely, charming neighborhoods in the core! If I had to leave Columbus, I'd go to Cincy.
