In 1990 the concept of the the Northside House Tour came about to show Cincinnati that the neighborhood was not the old, tired worn out community that it had gained a reputation for being.
Since that time the biennial house tour has shown off what peope have done with the old housing either restoring homes or refurbishing not only homes but retail & industrial places as well. In that time the neighborhood has been on the rebound as new residents from in and around Cincinnati have established homes as well as businesses in Northside. Recent tours have included new homes, too.
Each year we alternate between a walking house tour and a horse drawn carriage riding Porch Tour that has brought hundreds of people to the neighborhood to see the architecture and nature of the eclectic Cincinnati Neighborhood. We hope you will want to visit on one of these tours.
This year's tour will be held Sunday, September 30, 2012 from noon to 5:00 p.m. starting at CAIN, 4230 Hamilton Avenue. Tickets for the tour are $15 in advance (Sept. 17 to 29) online and at Building Value, North Side Bank & Trust Co., Shake It Records, and Taylor Jameson Hair Design. On the day of the tour, tickets will be available at Churches Active in Northside, (4230 Hamilton Avenue) for $18, with $1 from each sale donated to CAIN.
