Mueller Marble Works Ghost Sign in Cincinnati

Mueller Marble Works Ghost Sign in Cincinnati

I spotted the ghost sign for Mueller Marble Works on Mehring Way at Gas Alley, on the Southwestern edge of downtown Cincinnati. The plaque on the left reads The Standard Marble Works Co. [is that the business currently in this building?].

  1. Hi, big fan of the blog and can’t believe I missed this post!

    I am part of the company (Standard Marble & Tile) that was “kicked out” of this building in the early 1990s. The factory/warehouse next door owns it and had plans to demolish the building for more employee parking. Obviously, that hasn’t happened!

    Standard Marble & Tile used this building as a warehouse for terrazzo and marble fabrication. I know you are a fan of terrazzo entryways so that is why I’ve been a follower. Since then, Standard Marble’s parent company, T.H. Winston Co., has split in two and moved to Madisonville and Sarasota, FL. My father ripped out two beautiful marble fireplace surrounds in this building when we were kicked out and I was very lucky to recently install one of them in my new house.

    Thanks again for the post. I was actually browsing google image search looking for a photo of the building to print out and display in my new house to show the history of the fireplace.
