“celebrating the life of Cincinnati's William Howard Taft”

High atop one of Cincinnati's most prominent hilltops stands the two-story Greek Revival house where William Howard Taft was born and grew up. Hard work, a good education, and an interest in civic duty are attributes that made the Taft family outstanding leaders over the years. The environment that shaped Taft's character and philosophy  is highlighted  on a visit to the site. Visitors to Willam Howard Taft National Historic Site will be exposed to the familial and social influences that shaped the character and ideals of the only American who ever served as both President and Chief Justice of the United States. Guided tours of the period rooms on the first floor and the exhibits on the second floor of the birthplace provide solid insight into William Howard Taft and glimpses into the lives of his parents, siblings and children. The Taft Education Center exhibits and programs provide a greater understanding of the role other Tafts have played to help mold public life in Cincinnati, the nation and even the world. Gallery I contains a life-size animatronic figure of Charles P Taft II, son of William Howard Taft. Charlie will talk to visitors about what he called “quite a family.” Gallery II contains static and traveling exhibits. An orientation video and a gift shop are also available in the education center.
