This weekend, the owners of several historic homes in the area are flinging their doors open to visitors. Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) and Clifton Town Meeting are offering rare opportunities to see the interiors of some of Cincinnati’s most regal homes in two of the area’s grandest neighborhoods.

On Saturday from 1–5 p.m., CPA presents “Upstairs, Downstairs,” a series of self-guided tours of architectural gems in the Beechcrest-Madison Road area of East Walnut Hills.

If you‘re a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, you’ll want to get a ticket to the Clifton House Tour on Sunday from 1–5 p.m. While Clifton Town Meeting is being secretive about the specific homes on the tour, they’ve confirmed that a home designed by Wright will be open. Other highlighted styles begin in the 19th century and include Victorian, American Four-Square, and Tudor. The Clifton tours take place every third year on Mother’s Day and proceeds benefit projects throughout the community.
