I've never been to Cincinnati and have no connection to the city except that my mother graduated from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music back in the day - way back (I guess it's part of the University now?) - but a friend just posted a link to this blog article about an interesting house she just saw while visiting relatives there:

Day 358 Unique Houses | 365 Things to do in Cincinnati

And it seemed that people visiting or thinking of relocating might like to check out the other 364 Things to Do.

Sorry if this has been posted already; since I'm not a habitual visitor to the Cincinnati board I don't know.

No matter how many times I drive by that house, it never ceases to amaze me and never just blends into the background.

Truly one of those "Only in Cincinnati" things we take for granted.

Heh. The funny thing is, my friend posted the photo of it on her Facebook page while she's back there visiting relatives, and she said, "This is even weirder than anything I've seen in Port Townsend, and that's SAYING something!" I have a whole album of photos of random odd sightings in our town, including a 6' tall plaster hot dog character, a yard gate made out of the front grille of a school bus, a deer fence made out of old skis, a wooden bus stop shack painted psychedelic colors, etc. My favorite is of an old rusted pickup truck that's half-buried in the ground at about a 45-degree angle, with only the front end and half the cab sticking out. It looks like a zombie vehicle trying to claw its way out of the auto graveyard.

So you can imagine how I envy you guys having that house in your city.

we (eastsiders at least) definitely all know that house but are too polite to ask many questions.

Wow, that place has gotten even weirder looking since I last saw it in person.

Anyway, thanks for posting the link to that blog. It's quite interesting, and I'll definitely be bookmarking it.

My dad worked on that house with Terry many years ago. I'm not sure how exactly my dad got linked up with him, but he would go over and help out probably 10-15 years ago during that span. No pay, just was interested in it. I had a friend who lived on Tarpis, so I was over there all the time too. Got to go inside a few times and it was just as bizarre and interesting in there.
