Wrecking Cincinnati, 1/28/09

2568 Seegar Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1885
Died: December 2008
Cause of death: General neglect, structural issues and numerous requests for barricading, causing a public nuisance. The house became abandoned following the death of its owners.

Although orders on the property date back to 2001, it wasn't condemned until April 2006. It was declared a public nuisance in July 2006, but it took two-and-a-half years for the City to raze it.

At just 512 square feet and with most of the surrounding urban fabric now gone, there wasn't much desire to save this one.
