The Mansion of John Rowan's Federal Hill is one of the most iconic 19th-century homes in the United States.
John Rowan's beloved Federal Hill began as a one-story simple brick farm house set on 300 acres. The land was purchased using money given to John and his wife Ann, the daughter of Cincinnati founder Captain William Lytle in celebration of their wedding. In 1812, the house was enlarged with a grand three-story addition in the Federal style, a choice that expressed the family's commitment to an independent fledgling democratic nation.
