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.
