Wrecking Cincinnati, 5/11/10

2338 Wilder Avenue, Lower Price Hill
DOB: 1894
Died: August 2009
Cause of death: Structural damage due to water entering broken and missing windows, a collapsing front porch, deteriorated gutters and downspouts, lack of paint, and litter.

The City ordered the property vacant in 2007. Once vacant, it was subject to vandalism, and open windows and doors allowed the property to become a drug house.

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

The owner appears to have a warrant out for her arrest. A May 2009 "no contest" plea in a criminal case led to a fine of $100 and $94 in court costs.
