These first two rows show the Eucharistic Congress (Communion) held in and around the Archbishop's Residence in Norwood in October of 1911. The 2nd and 3rd rows show the Archbishop's residence at 5440 Moeller Avenue, which had just been built that year, (which is why the area looks so barren in the real photo postcards). The 14 acres were bordered by Montgomery Road and Drex, Moeller, named after Archbishop Henry Moeller, and Quatman Avenues.
These are various images of the Archbishop's Residence
Archbishop Henry Moeller had long complained that his residence on
Eighth Street was unhealthy and inadequate. He bought the land in Norwood and
had Samuel Hannaford design his "palace". Although Moeller loved the
Italian Renaissance style mansion, most of his successors preferred not to live
in it. After Moeller died in 1925, the building has been used as a teachers
college and as a part of the seminary. After the school year in 1981 Mount St.
Mary's returned to Mt. Washington. The buildings in the late 80's were unused
and for sale by the Cincinnati Archdiocese. The building is now the property of
the Holy Spirit Center and is used as a residence.
Construction began in 1921 on the building seen below and was completed in 1923. Mount St. Mary's Seminary of the West moved in from the Mt. Washington site. The seminary had been located in five different locations before settling here. (see Religious Institutions Page 2).
Archbishop John Timothy McNicholas took over with the death of Archbishop Moeller in 1925. The new archbishop incorporated all the educational work being done in diocese. This new organization became The Athenaeum of Ohio. The Athenaeum of Ohio was chartered to grant degrees for both Mount Saint Mary's of the west and St. Gregory seminaries.

The first RPPC image above was mailed in 1913 by S. M. Veneranda. Sister M. Veneranda was Superioress Sisters of St. Frances and she lived at 2729 Massachusetts Avenue. The 2nd photograph shows this house as it looks today and although there has been many changes over the years I think you will agree that this is the house that is shown in the 1913 postcard. The third overhead image shows this building across the street from the Sacred Hearts Church. That is I75 on the far left.
