[caption id="attachment_372" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Row Houses in Mount Auburn"][/caption] By: Julie Kelly For second part of my series on the original "seven hills" of Cincinnati, I chose to feature Mount Auburn. Growing up outside of Cincinnati in a little country town, I always got excited when we traveled downtown. It didn't matter if we were going to the doctor or just passing through to go to the Cincinnati Zoo, I particularly loved driving through Mount Auburn just to look at all the magnificent architecture and feel the history that fills the air. It is an area rich in architectural history. The most notable styles of homes in the neighborhood include; Federal, Greek Revival, Victorian and Georgian Revival. Charles Dickens was quoted as saying,  "I was quite charmed with the appearance of the town, and its adjoining suburb of Mount Auburn: from which the city, lying in an amphitheatre of hills, forms a picture of remarkable beauty, and is seen to great advantage."
