Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/14/08

1787 Agnes Street, South Cumminsville
DOB: 1895
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Stripped of siding and lacking an adequate roof, allowing water to enter and damage the structure. The front porch was also collapsing and the lot was continually filled with trash.

Trespassers had easy entry and the structure became a neighborhood hangout. The original owner died in early 2003, and the City officially vacated the property in late 2004. For some reason, City inspectors continued to send him notices for three years after they noticed his death.

The house was condemned in December 2006 and declared a public nuisance this April. It was razed by the City.
