Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
One of the earliest grand mansions with Federalist detail in Ohio, this single story structure (c. 1820) was formerly the home of Charles P. Taft, half-brother of President Taft. In 1908, William Howard Taft accepted the presidential nomination from the portico. In 1927, Mr. and Mrs. Taft bequeathed it and their collections of paintings, oriental porcelains, and sculpture to the city of Cincinnati.

Condition:
Currently, there are no threats to the NHL.

No changes have been made to the house; however, an area in the garden that was the site of plants has been replaced by pavers.
