Regarding The Verona. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
The Verona Apartments meet Criterion A in the area of community development as one of the first largescale apartment developments built in Cincinnati's suburban neighborhoods at the tum-of-the-20thcentury. The building is significant for its historical association with Cincinnati's premier real estate development firm of the early 20* century, Thomas J. Emery's Sons, and their construction of large scale, high-density apartment buildings outside of downtown in the 1900s. The Emery firm pioneered the development of these apartments along transit lines in hilltop neighborhoods in response to the city's rapid population growth. These new buildings provided convenient and desirable housing for a wide variety of people including single persons, young couples without children, women entering the workforce, and elderly and retired people. In doing so, the Emerys became the city's leading landlord for apartment living
