Cincinnati Glencoe-Auburn Place

Cincinnati Glencoe-Auburn Place Hotel and Row Houses

Glencoe-Auburn Place in Cincinnati is unlike anything I’ve seen before. It’s almost like a different world. And if you weren’t looking for it you’d never know it was there. You’re driving through comfy Cincinnati¬†Mount Auburn suburbia and take a turn down a rather normal looking street. Within a block you think you’ve run into a movie set for an end-of-the-world apocalypse movie. Abandoned boarded up buildings, graffiti, weeds taller than people, and broken windows. The Glencoe-Auburn complex was built in the late 1800’s and consists of row house apartment buildings and the Glencoe-Auburn Hotel. Originally designed for the wealthy, by the mid-1900’s it was mainly inhabited by low income tenants and had fallen into disrepair and was later abandoned. In the early 2000’s it was recognized as a historic district. These are part of my Cincinnati photo gallery.

It’s eerie. Ominous. And great for pictures.
