The Stites House - Columbia/Tusculum

This photo on Instagram from cincinnati_revealed inspired me to dig a bit into the history of this home.

While the Hamilton County Auditor has the year built as 1865, it turns out that part of this home are much older (1830s) and built by one of the founding families of Hamilton County. As I started my digging, I found a wonderful article in the Cincinnati Enquirer that had explored the history of this home in 1970, so please enjoy this look back into the history of this home!

  1. I just found your blog via Pinterest. Fascinating!

  2. Thanks so much for this! My 6th great grandfather was Major Benjamin Stites. Discovering my family lineage is so exciting!
