Home Tour in Columbia-Tusculum on October 6, 2013

If you are a fan of homes found in older, established neighborhoods, mark your calendar. A public home tour is scheduled in historic Columbia-Tusculum for October 6, 2013. The tour will feature approximately 15 residences.

2013 is the 225th anniversary of this neighborhood’s establishment. It is the oldest Cincinnati neighborhood and many of the homes in Columbia-Tusculum were built in the late 1700s and late 1800s.

The area features many beautiful Victorian painted ladies among other attractive home styles. In the past few years, a revitalization has occurred in the area with beautifully built new homes that fit well among the older homes. Cincinnati’s first Greenarama took place in Columbia-Tusculum in 2011.

Columbia-Tusculum has developed into a walking neighborhood with many local dining and shopping opportunities.
