Wrecking Cincinnati, 5/27/10

1740 Harrison Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1900
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: A rotted rear foundation sill, holes in the ceiling and walls, missing siding, water damage, a badly deteriorated rear wall, and deficient windows, gutters and chimney. The property required City barricading on several occasions to keep out vermin and trespassers.

The house was condemned in June 2007, declared a public nuisance in January 2008, and razed by the City.

It's likely that either the City could not determine ownership of the property, or the owner on record could not be found.
