Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/23/08

2566 Liddell Street, North Fairmount
DOB: 1895
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Failing roof, gutters, and downspouts, allowing moisture to damage the structure and the foundation. Windows were also missing, requiring frequent City barricading to keep out trespassers, who had vandalized the building.

It was first condemned in November 2004. The owners filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and lost the house to their creditors in late 2006 or early 2007. In the meantime, a criminal case was prepared.

It was declared a public nuisance in July 2007 and razed by the City. The criminal case was closed.
