John Omwake residence
Description: Caption reads "Residence of John Omwake, 2409 Grandin Raod. Erected in 1905, of indian red limestone and stucco, the architecture reminds one of the english tavern or hostelry of Charles Dickens' time. Considered by many enthusiasts as one of the most beautiful estates in Cincinnati, it is so situated that it overlooks the beautiful Ohio River and the distant hills of Kentucky.
