WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -  The City of Cincinnati will hold a public hearing Wednesday for people to weigh in about the historic Gamble House in Westwood.

Controversy over the home began when its owner, Green Acres Foundation, started dismantling it, with plans to tear it down.

There's been some discussion about the city taking it by eminent domain.

The mansion was home to James Gamble, the son of Procter and Gamble's co-founder and the inventor of ivory soap.

Public comment begins at 6:30 p.m. at Midway School on Glenmore Avenue.
