8. Taft Museum

What is now the Taft Museum was originally built around 1820 for Martin Baum and through the years was owned by Nicholas Longworth and David Sinton, the father of the museum’s co-founder Anna Sinton Taft. It was the Taft family who in 1927 gave the home and its extensive art collection to the people of Cincinnati and became the Taft Museum.

If you have not been inside the museum do yourself a favor and go sometime. It is a very beautiful home filled with many great works of art. The museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens and also has a great outdoor reception area for weddings and gatherings.
