Mill Creek 'landmark' coming down

The abandoned grain silos are coming down at the Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. site on Beekman Street in South Cumminsville.

David J. Jones has sent along a couple of photos he took of the progress.

As a photographer who sometimes works with the Cincinnati Fire Department (CFD), Jones passed along word that an alarmed neighbor called the CFD thinking it was an unplanned collapse!

The Mill Creek Valley is definitely going to look different without them.

Nationwide Demo is the demolition contractor.

Mt. Carmel Stabilization Group Inc. of Mt. Carmel, IL has owned the silos since 2002.
