Columbia Tusculum

As promised yesterday, I wanted to share some photos from our visit to Cincinnati's oldest riverfront community! Columbia Tusculum is one of the cities' most scenic neighborhoods with rows of the "Grand Old Painted Ladies," Victorian gingerbread homes with beautifully vibrant colors highlighting the unique detailing on these historic homes. Most of the homes have been restored and date back to the late 1700's and early 1800's. We loved the personality of this colorful neighborhood!

Those houses are so beautiful! I would love to live in a house like that. Unfortunately, the architecture of our home is the same as a box.

I hopped over here from Nesting Place and was so surprised to see photos of Cincinnati! How fun! I live on the East side not far from these beautiful homes.

I LOVE the photographs you took of these houses. Do you think I could use them for a post I'm writing about Columbia Tusculum for my blog? I would of course give you the credit for them and link back to your site. Just let me know.

Thanks! -Julia :-)
