North Avondale is one of Cincinnati’s most architecturally distinguished neighborhoods. In the mid-1800s large tracts of land were subdivided and wealthy merchants and manufacturers began building large homes on spacious lots. Businessmen such as Andrew Erkenbrecher, Samuel Pogue, Frank Herschede, and Barney Kroger built homes on the neighborhood’s winding tree-lined streets. Today historic homes in North Avondale range from the 1890s to 1930s and are still some of finest examples of residential architecture in the city featuring Italian Renaissance, English Medieval, and Greek Revival styles.
