Cincinnati is a city packed with history. Like, jam packed. Pretty much anywhere you turn, there’s a new story to uncover, a cast of characters waiting to be revealed.
With that in mind, let’s travel back to 1848 -- when Virginian H.W. Hughes arrived in Cincinnati.
The founder of Union National Bank, Hughes moved to Glendale in 1855 and settled right in at 825 Greenville Avenue. The Post-Colonial-style house (which was built by George Crawford and sports a stately, columned front porch) is a beauty.
Sadly, the home fell upon hard times. By 1905, it was often referred to as the “haunted house.” But what do we do when we fall off the horse? ... Answer: we get back on.
And that’s just what this gorgeous home did. It managed to get its groove back, changing ownership only a handful of times. Which brings us to today... The time to find a new caretaker has come once again.
825 Greenville Ave. is back on the market, listed at $699,900.
