The John Hauck House

812 Dayton Street
The elegant, stone-fronted Hauck townhouse on Dayton Street’s “Millionaire’s Row,” was built circa 1870 for coal dealer George W. Skaats. The house was then purchased in the 1880s by beer baron John Hauck, whose brewery was located a block away. The sumptuous Victorian interior is filled with exquisite murals, wood trim and plasterwork. See the full homeowner’s history below.


In 2023, Cincinnati Preservation once again calls the John Hauck House home as a Preservation Homebase. With offices located on the second floor, the first floor is a Preservation Library and Resource Room.

Experience the John Hauck House

You can learn more about the history of the house, the family who stewarded it the longest and their brewery blocks away in the John Hauck House museum room.

The Preservation Library and Resource is open by appointment and supported in Memory of Michael Ibold Wilger and the John Hauck Foundation.


In 2024, work has begun to convert the first floor of the carriage house into a conference center that can host workshops, events and meetings.
