French Features

Reserve the French House for a private party and you and your guests can feel like you’ve stepped back decades in time. French House is the focal point of 275-acre French Park. French House was built in the early 1900’s and then remodeled several times. The two-story brick house offers many adjacent rooms and outdoor terraces, surrounded by gardens and meadows in the center of French Park for private functions.
French Park itself has miles of hiking trails, creeks, meadows and wooded hillsides, a shelter and a distant view of Cincinnati. The park is in Amberley Village.

French Park (Amberley Village)
Herbert Greer French House: Once the home of Herbert Greer French, this rentable structure is the focal point of a 276-acre property bequeathed by French to Cincinnati Parks. A Procter & Gamble executive from 1893 until his death in 1942, French acquired a group of farms and selected this farmhouse to use as a lodge around 1910 and called it Reachmont Farm. He moved there full-time in 1931. This brick house appears to be early-19th-century and was altered and expanded more than once in the early 20th century. In the mid-1970s, Savage, Chappelear, Schulte Associates carried out a major renovation. The house remains an excellent example of Federal and Colonial Revival architecture.
