Walking Tour | Mount Adams

Off-Site Program

Join the Taft Museum of Art and explore Cincinnati’s first suburb, Mount Adams! The tour will visit “Mount Ida”—home of the first observatory in North America, made possible by early Taft historic house resident Nicholas Longworth’s donation of property—among many other “firsts” to sight-see during the one-mile walk. Guests will also discover surprising facts and folklore. Comfortable walking shoes are suggested as you will encounter some stairs, a few steps, and some moderately graded streets.

In case of inclement weather, these walking tours will be rescheduled for a later date.
