William Howard Taft National Historic Site - Review

This place is maintained by the National Park Service of the US and is where President William Howard Taft was born and grew to serve his country. This place was once the suburb where rich people used to stay to be away from the noisy city streets.

It is known that this house initially belonged to some other family who built it for themselves. William’s father Alphonso Taft bought this house along with the majority of the garden and lawn when he came here to practice law. He later brought in his wife and his son was born. William started supporting the Republican Party from a very early age and thus become the representative of the party also at a very early age.

After the death of the President, the house was passed on to some other family but was again restored by the State as a National Heritage of the country. The estate was restored in such a way to make the house again look like how it was when the President used to stay in here. Now the place is divided as a location for two buildings. The first building serves as a museum. The first floor here has 5 rooms out of which one room is to represent the room of baby William and the other 4 rooms to display the culture and lifestyle of those times. The second floor is filled with many other books, journals and furniture, photographs, etc. Out of this all do not belong to the Taft Family. The second building is a visitor’s center that is also known as the William Howard Education Center. This consists of a display room, gift shop and a panel to guide tourists and visitors.

William Howard Taft National Historic Site, Cincinnati Reviews

  • The 15 minute video was very informative and helped me appreciate the house more. After the video we took a tour of the house with a ranger, she was super nice and very knowledgeable! The house is worth a visit!

  • This was the first presidential home I have visited and wasn't expecting much, but to my surprise, I spent over 2 hours here listening to the tour guide, which let us in personally into most rooms and all the displays, packed with a lot of information. Highly recommended, even if not a huge president fan. A cool way to step into history.

  • Rangers were amazing! House tour thorough. Free, onsite parking in downtown Cincinnati! Museum is interesting. Awesome way to learn about the only man who was both President and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court!

  • The guide did not give my group a tour. We had to tour on our own. I noticed other groups had a guide giving them information. We werre only shown the movie.

  • interesting information. very knowledgeable park service guide. more stuff being added in visitors center. love the animated gentleman that tells a few brief stories.
