Once an American boom town, Cincinnati is thought to be the first true American city, in part, due to the fact that it’s the first major American city founded after the American Revolution. It was also the first major inland city in the country. In the late 1800s, it was called the “Paris of America” during a time when architects designed buildings for the “new progressive cultural capital.”
Today, architectural bits and pieces of the Paris of America can be seen in some of the best known Cincinnati landmarks: Cincinnatian Hotel, Music Hall and the Shillito Department Store. Another Cincinnati attraction is Over-the-Rhine, a neighborhood in Cincinnati claimed to be the biggest and most intact historic district in America. Over-the-Rhine contains the largest collection of Italianate architecture in the United States!
Another place with a historical background is the Best Western Premier Mariemont Inn. Originally designed to be the private guesthouse of Cincinnati’s lady bountiful, Mary Emery, and named after Mrs. Emery’s summer home in Rhode Island for a town in England. This hotel features English Tudor-style architecture and opened to the public on April 13, 1926.
