Walking Tour: Kemper & McMillan

Walnut Hills

Well my love affair with Walnut Hills continues with a quick look at some buildings near the intersection of Kemper Lane and East McMillan. I do not know a lot about the buildings here but there is some great architecture here (not including Kroger) and about a block in each direction.

What is the building with the little faces next to the library? I passed it the other day (and thought of Queen City Survey! Really!). It looks closed up, how sad. Love the small devilish heads all around!

Anne: It is an apartment building. I love those faces too!

What is the red brick building on the NW corner of Park and McMillan. It looks like a public building of some type. I heard it had something to do with the old trolley system but I can't confirm this. Does anyone know?
