Description of the Cincinnati House of Refuge.



The Cincinnati House of Refuge, which was opened for the reception
of inmates October 7, 1850, is situated about four miles northwest of the
city post-ofRce, on the east side of Colerain Avenue.

The grounds belonging to the institution contain g% acres, five of
which are inclosed on three sides by a stone wall, the main building
completing the quadrangle, and within the inclosure are the smaller
buildings, greenhouses, gymnasium, school, First-Division boys* depart-
ment (a new two -story brick building, recently erected), power-house,
lavatories, and the play- and drill - grounds.

The main building, which faces west, is a castellated edifice of rough
blue limestone, with window-caps, casings, and portico of white Dayton
stone, presenting an imposing front of 277 feet. It comprises a center
building 52 by 85 feet, five stories in height above the basement, which
projects two feet in front, and two wings ^5 by 96 feet each, four
stories high above the basement. The north wing contains one hundred
and twelve sleeping-rooms for boys; in the basement is a plunge- and
shower-bath 12 by 50 feet, and deep enough for swimming purposes;
also twentv-six dressing-rooms. The south wing is occupied exclusively
by the girls, and contains seventy-two single sleeping - rooms, one room
large enough to contain twelve beds, two sewing-rooms, one school-room,
two store-rooms, and hospital department Twelve new single bath-
rooms and lavatories in the basement have recently been added. The
center building is used for directors' room, superintendent's apartments,
and officers' rooms.

Eleven years ago a new building was erected for the Kindergarten
Department, or First-Division girls. It is a substantial structure of brick
and stone 44 by 62 feet, three stories high above the basement, connected
by a corridor with the female department of the original building at its
southwest corner. The basement is light, dry, and airy, with a ceiling
9 feet 10 inches hieh, and has a Portland-cement floor, and is used for bath-
rooms, closets, and recreation-room. The first story is for school-rooms ;
the second and third stories are for dormitories, work-rooms, store-room,
