Walking Tour Explores Betts Longworth Historic District

The Betts House is proud to announce our 2014 Betts Longworth Historic District (BLHD) Walking Tours, offered each month from March through October.  This guided walking tour of the Betts Longworth Historic District (BLHD) will explore the architecture and history of this unique neighborhood. The tour will occur regularly during walking tour season (March through October) taking place the fourth Saturday of each month at 1 pm.

Tucked away in the southeast corner of the West End, the BLHD features streetscapes unlike any other in the city. Narrow Italianate homes are mixed with nineteenth century farmhouses and early twentieth century gems. The Betts Longworth Historic District, once farmland far removed from town, became the home of notable manufacturing and retailing families. The stories of their homes and business will be explored in this 90 minute tour lead by Betts House volunteers.

The tour was developed for The Betts House by Architreks and the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati, Cincinnati’s premier architectural walking tour. Admission is $10 and includes admission to The Betts House. The tour departs from The Betts House, 416 Clark Street and takes place rain or shine. Reservations are not required, though space is limited to 15 visitors.


Built in 1804, Ohio’s oldest brick house is located in the Betts-Longworth Historic District near downtown Cincinnati.  The Betts House is a museum of the built environment, offering exhibits and programs exploring architecture, historic preservation, building trades, construction technologies, and building materials.  The Betts House is located two blocks west of Music Hall at 416 Clark Street.
