Pinecroft, the Powel Crosley Mansion

National Register of Historic Places

Cincinnati Preservation is proud to be the steward of Pinecroft, the estate of famed inventor and industrialist Powel Crosley. Nicknamed “Cincinnati’s Thomas Edison,” Crosley lived in the house until his death in 1961.

Built in 1928 in the Tudor Revival style, Pinecroft was designed by nationally significant architect Dwight James Baum. Well cared for since it was built, the house retains many wonderful original features inside and out.

In 2014 the estate’s formal gardens were restored from original plans with a generous grant from the Carol and Ralph V. Haile/US Bank Foundation. Pinecroft was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2008 for its historic and architectural significance.

The Pinecroft mansion and 17 serene acres were donated to Cincinnati Preservation by Mercy Health in 2012. The house and beautiful grounds now serve as an event center, hosting social events, corporate meetings and weddings. Proceeds support our preservation work. Pinecroft is managed by Funky’s Event Catering.
