In the 1990s, environmental artist Alice Weston photographed dozens of grand old homes in Cincinnati for the book "Great Houses of the Queen City: Two Hundred Years of Historic and Contemporary Architecture and Interiors in Cincinnati." This digital collection, presented by the University of Cincinnati, brings together 1,400 images taken by Weston, including hundreds of images not included in the book. Clicking on the Explore tab allows users to look through the images by date of building construction, architect, or street address. First-time visitors may wish to start by exploring the photos of the Clarence M. Davidson House or the elaborate Hauck House, which is now a museum. The Hauck House was originally built by one John Hauck, a German immigrant who was one of the Queen City's celebrated brewers. Overall, the site is a great way to learn about Cincinnati's growth and development in the 19th and 20th centuries, and it's quite fun to learn about the architecture and design of these remarkable homes.
