Observatory Historic District

Herget Building

Self-Guided Walking Tour

The Cincinnati Observatory is located on one of the most historic and picturesque streets in the city. With several beautifully restored homes from the late 1800s, our street makes a lovely stroll back in time.

Upon completing a tour of the Observatory, you can meander the grounds to see several historic markers. Then, start your self-guided walking tour designed to help show off the different architectural elements of the area while you learn more about the first Cincinnatians to make this neighborhood their home.
