I will be visiting Cincinnati this coming June and I would like to see the Pinecroft estate where Powel Crosley Jr lived. Can anyone give me an address so that I can go find this place? If there are any other buildings in Cincinnati that are still standing that have strong connections to the history of Powel Crosley, please advise.
I have been reading the new Crosley book and find it quite fascinating and would like to see some of the places mentioned in the book.

Gwendolyn Aiken married Powel Crosley Jr. in Cincinnati in 1910. She had suffered from respiratory illness for some time and the actual cause of her death was never learned. Other survivors include her son Powel Crosley III and her brothers Walter Avery Aiken and Victor A. Aiken of Richmond, Indiana.
