Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/1/09

1977 Harrison Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1895
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Deteriorated roof and gutters, cornice windows and stairs needing repair, half-boarded windows, water damage, severe concrete damage to the rear of the building, and no water or utilities. Heavy litter and high grass and weeds blighted the property.

The house was condemned in January 2007 and declared a public nuisance that May. Pre-prosecution hearings were underway, but a new owner emerged in late 2007, starting the entire process all over again.

It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
