Wrecking Cincinnati, 4/16/09

3211 McHenry Avenue, Westwood
DOB: 1913
Died: February 2009
Cause of death: Defective siding, framing, gutters, downspouts, and windows. A rear frame addition had rotting roofing, sheathing and framing. Orders date back to 2006, but the house wasn't condemned until October 2008.

It was purchased by the neighboring property owner last September for $2,500 to eliminate blight in the neighborhood. It was hand-wrecked privately.
