Mount Auburn

I was quite charmed with the appearance of the town, and its adjoining suburb of Mount Auburn: from which the city, lying in an amphitheater of hills, forms a picture of remarkable beauty, and is seen to great advantage.
—Charles Dickens (on Cincinnati), American Notes

Once a hilltop retreat for wealthier Cincinnatians and the site of the home of William Howard Taft, 27th U.S. President, Mt. Auburn has several ornate, spectacular mansions that have been beautifully restored. Sweeping views, proximity to downtown and affordable property values are drawing renovators and do-it-yourselfers to this neighborhood, which features solidly built 19th century buildings now being converted into condos, townhouses and flats. Christ Hospital, one of the area’s major medical facilities, is located here and many other medical facilities are only minutes away. It is home to an interdenominational school, God’s Bible School & College.
