Announcement of the Bracket
Thirty-two buildings and structures will compete this March to see who will be crowded the best in Cincinnati by our readers. "Teams" have been seeded by the Committee (me) and divided in to two regions – East & West. Two teams will be selected by a "play-in game" beginning tomorrow where folks can vote and nominate their favorites not listed. Those two will join the competition for a shot at the title. The Committee selections were based on their overall stats including, but not limited to, their history, importance, and over-all status in the community. All National Historic Landmarks (NHL) in Cincinnati were included. The committee debated including the Village of Mariemont and the Glendale Historic District which are National Historic Landmarks but were deemed ineligible. Northern Kentucky’s only National Historic Landmark, the Daniel C. Beard Home in Covington, was also considered but the committee just decided to pass on an invite.
And now for the 2008 Cincinnati March(itecture) Madness Tournament Bracket:
