At Longworth Hall, you’ll find a historic character.
Nicholas Longworth arrived in Cincinnati on a raft with nothing but his clothes to his name. As a lawyer and real estate tycoon, he became one of the country’s riches and most extraordinary men.
The building that bears the original owner’s name shares the distinction of being both rich and extraordinary. Longworth Hall, originally a warehouse for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, has become one of Cincinnati’s most unique business locations. Built in 1903, the building offers character that is seldom found in structures today. This character can be seen in the original oak-beamed ceilings, exposed brick, skylights and maple hardwood floors. It can be felt in the far-from-ordinary office building atmosphere. “A skyscraper on its side,” it was once one of the longest buildings in the world. Carefully renovated as a mixed-use facility, Longworth Hall has been placed on the National Historic Registry.
