Wrecking Cincinnati, 4/26/10

338 McGregor Avenue, Mount Auburn
DOB: 1911
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Brick failure, deteriorated gutters and downspouts, and an abundance of litter. Squatters and drug dealers had set up shop. Building code violations dated back to 2003, and electrical service had been shut off.

The house was condemned in May 2007, declared a public nuisance in September 2008, and razed by the City following asbestos abatement.

Owner Evelyn Baskin had tried to sell the property, but it was apparently unattractive to buyers.
