The Betts House Research Center is a Federal style structure that is built of bricks. It possesses a well-made stone foundation that makes it a showcase of a wide range of historic building techniques.

When interpreting its permanent exhibit, the house is in itself an artifact that is complimented by an informative pamphlet of historic architectural details as well as a Time Line that places the house in its historic context.

It was built by William and Phebe Stevens Betts as their residence sitting on a 111-acre brick manufactory farm. The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America acquired the house as a gift in 1994. It promised to oversee the house as a Research Center aiming to interpret Cincinnati?s history from the 1800?s up to the present by studying the evolution of using the materials and traditions in the area.
