Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/30/08

3617 Dawson Avenue, South Cumminsville
DOB: 1880
Died: September 2008
Cause of death: Cracked sidewalks, a deteriorated front porch, and poor gutters, eaves, and downspouts. It had long been vacant and open to the elements, and the roof had begun to give way.

The house was vacated by the City in 2002 and condemned in December 2003. Declared a public nuisance in September 2006, it was put out to bid for demolition in early 2007.

It was razed by the City, and a criminal case is pending. It's likely that the property was abandoned.
