Mariemont – Two Houses (Short Group) on Oak Street Opposite the Mariemont Church and Next to Dale Park Square

Many of Mariemont’s streets were named after and featured one or another of a species of hardwood trees.  This included Oak Street, Maple Street, Beech Street etc.  Above are photographs of two houses on Oak Street.  Mariemont required that all homes be designed by an architect with the result that, instead of repetitive styles of homes designed by a builder, all of Mariemont’s single-family homes reflect unique designs while Mariemont’s townhouses and apartments typically featured designs by renowned national architects.
