The walking tour will showcase four exceptional houses from different periods in the neighborhood’s fascinating history, including the grand Cote Bonneville built in 1902. This historic home and Cincinnati treasure was at the heart of the former Raeburn Estate and has never before been open for public tour. It features a circular tower, octagonal turret as well as a carriage house.
- Faber House: This home was inspired by one of the homes in the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. It was built in 1946 for Stuart Faber, the son of Herbert Faber who was the second owner of Cote Bonneville, and features a distinctive brick design.
- Wright House: This is a modern, architect-designed “green” residence built in 2011 which achieved LEED Gold certification.
- Kaneshiro House: This is an Asian-inspired California contemporary home built in 1985 with a private entry courtyard.
This is a walking tour of approximately 1.1 miles. There is no transportation provided but parking is available on the streets in the neighborhood for those who do not want to walk.
