The Cincinnati Preservation Association’s Annual Preservation Awards were held on Sunday, November 15 and recognized two projects in which SSRG played a key role: The Rubel House and 1916 Freeman Ave.

SSRG’s work has received previous CPA Awards of Merit

Longtime SSRG partner The Port Cincinnati received two Special Merit Awards for these projects. The Rubel House is an 1890s home designed by esteemed local architect Samuel Hanaford. Local landmarks like Cincinnati City Hall and Music Hall also bear the Hanaford touch. The stately home had fallen into disrepair, and SSRG led the restoration of the stunning front porch and its impressive rounded corner.

Additionally, the property at 1916 Freeman Ave in the Dayton Street Historic District received recognition. The Italianate brick townhouse was built for a German-American stained glass artisan and his family. The neglected building had mostly lost its second floor facade, leaving the interior susceptible to the elements. SSRG repaired the facade and reinforced the structure to preserve if for its next chapter.
