CINCINNATI, OHIO PROPERTY EST. 1882 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES When it opened in 1882, the Palace Hotel quickly became a jewel in the Queen City’s crown. A stunning French Second Empire structure, it showcased opulent features such as a grand walnut and marble staircase and novelties such as elevators and incandescent lighting.
