Historic Stone Castle in Cincinnati
This imposing residence has graced Cincinnati’s Hyde Park neighborhood since 1906, and many of its original details remain intact to this day.
Designed by architecture firm Elzner & Anderson, the home was built for Mary Hanna – an heiress to a coal, iron, railroad and real estate fortune – who lived there until her death in 1956. While parts of the original estate have been sold off, it once included a carriage house, a caretaker’s house, a greenhouse and a car garage – perhaps making Hanna one of the first Cincinnatians to drive on Grandin Road.

The mansion’s exterior is constructed entirely out of Indiana limestone, and its ceramic tile roof is in good condition for its age. Inside, much of the home’s tilework was provided by Cincinnati’s Rookwood Pottery Company, while some of its wood cabinetry was likely carved by a Cincinnati woman (an acceptable activity for women at the time).
The main stairwell features a cozy seating alcove by a window, overlooking the vast front lawn and Grandin Road. We’re also smitten with the veranda, shaded by a trellis draped with wisteria vines. Flip through the photo gallery above to find your favorite space in this notable estate.
