Lytle Park Series

Elegance has surrounded Lytle almost from the beginning. This imposing, Federal-style mansion, built by Martin Baum in 1820, became the social and cultural center of Cincinnati in the mid-1880's under the ownership of Nicholas Longworth, a noted Cincinnatian and patron of the arts.

The home was purchased by David Sinton in 1871. Two years later, his only daughter Anna made her home here as the new bride of Charles Phelps Taft and continued to develop the home's fine art collection. Mr. and Mrs. Taft gifted the home, and its art to the citizens of Cincinnati in 1927.
