Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/27/08

1260 Manss Avenue, West Price Hill
DOB: 1924
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Razed by the St. Michael Ertirean Orthodox Tewahdo Church to make way for a parking lot.

The City had ordered the building vacant in September 2007 due to unsafe wooden stairs, damaged and missing siding, tree damage to the gutter system, and a damaged and tarped garage roof. The previous owner had lost the house to bankruptcy.

The church bought the property in January for $15,500 and began hand wrecking in July.
