The Taft Museum of Art is housed in the 200-year-old historic house at 316 Pike Street. The house – the oldest domestic wooden structure in downtown Cincinnati in situ – was built about 1820 and housed several prominent Cincinnatians, including Martin Baum, Nicholas Longworth, David Sinton, Anna Sinton Taft and Charles Phelps Taft.[2] It now holds a fine art collection, is on the National Register of Historic Places listings, and is a contributing property to the Lytle Park Historic District.[3]
