In the heart of Cincinnati’s historic West End neighborhood, nestled along the enchanting Millionaire’s Row this unique 1858 Italianate home stands ready for a new owner to further its history. 819 Dayton Street—originally numbered 101 Dayton—was the first home to Samuel C. Rodger, a wealthy commercial merchant, and auctioneer who lived at 819 Dayton for only a year. Over the next 165 years, more than 15 owners would live in, change, update, subdivide, and remodel this beautiful mansion while maintaining parts of its original pieces and accentuating all of its charm. Records of the home show that immigrants from 8 different nations have lived in this home at some point, speaking more than a dozen languages. A merchant, a magistrate judge, a city council member, and a medical doctor have all called this space their home. Nuances, features, and components remain throughout and within the house to show its transition from a time when running water and electricity were not available to now being partially powered by solar energy and having a water purification system. You can see, feel, and experience the passage of time at this property and in this neighborhood. Come be a part of that history and own a special, one-of-a-kind home that will take your breath away. Strolling through the tree-lined, dense, Dayton Street Historic District you will be enthralled, and awed by the architecture and beauty of the neighborhood. At the time they were built, these were some of the nicest homes in Ohio and still maintain a spectacular charm that cannot be found in other areas of the city. Today, 819 Dayton Street stands as a living monument to the opulence and grandeur of Cincinnati’s past. It has transitioned through the centuries, witnessed a Civil War, and the advent of electricity, and gone from a symbol of newfound wealth to a reminder of the city’s rich history. The mansion continues to offer a glimpse into a bygone era when Cincinnati’s Millionaire’s Row was a symbol of affluence and prosperity. Today the home, like the neighborhood is a representation, of a changing and rejuvenating landscape in the throes of another rebirth.
