Wrecking Cincinnati, 11/11/09

1710 State Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1890
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: Deteriorated sheathing, siding, sill plates and wall framing; a rear addition separating from the main structure; missing gutters and downspouts; an unsafe porch roof; and lack of paint.

A tenant was living inside the building rent-free, and had not heard from the owner for several years. It's likely that the owner was deceased.

The house was condemned in February 2008 and declared a public nuisance in December 2008. It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
