William Howard Taft National Historic Site

Located on a hill in Cincinnati, Ohio, this is the birthplace and boyhood home of the 27th President of the United States. The second floor is a museum dealing with Taft’s political career which included executive cabinet positions prior to becoming president and serving as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court after his presidency.  This was a ‘well to do’ neighborhood at one time. Sort of the upscale suburb of its time.  Like a lot of other older neighborhoods, this one has fallen into decline and a lot of the period homes have been torn down over time.

Taft Reserve Indian Mound

I hiked around the Taft Reserve In Licking County, Ohio.  Inside are 2 American Indian Mounds. I was only able to locate this one which is known as the Huffman Mound or Tippet Mound.
