Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/18/08

912 Windsor Street, Walnut Hills
DOB: 1870
Died: July 2007
Cause of death: Building code violations dating back to 2003, including a defective cornice and lintels, defective drainage issues, a lack of utilities, weeds and excessive litter. The porches were removed, leading to an unsafe dropoff. The property required numerous City barricades.

A criminal case on the orders was filed in January 2007, but was dismissed for want of prosecution. The house was condemned in March 2007.

It was declared a public nuisance in October 2007, and the property eventually was razed privately.
