The Cincinnati Preservation Association, a nonprofit that helps (as the name suggests) preserve historic cultural resources through education, advocacy and support, is hosting a tour of the Lloyd Taft House.

The 7,000-square-foot Lloyd Taft House, located on a wooded estate in Indian Hill, is one of the area’s best-known late-20th-century Modern homes. Built in 1978 for the grandson of President William Howard Taft, it is the only local residential work of New York architect Charles Gwathmey and earned the American Institute of Architects’ National Honor Award in 1984.

Tickets include a tour and access to speakers throughout the day who will be covering topics including Modernism in Cincinnati, Cincinnati’s Terrace Plaza Hotel and Saving the Rauh House. Tours will be given on the half hour; select your tour time when you purchase tickets.

1-5 p.m. Saturday (May 11). $35 non-member; $30 members advance; $35 day-of members. Park at the Armstrong Chapel, 5125 Drake Road, Indian Hill, cincinnatipreservation.org
