Wrecking Cincinnati, 5/3/10

214 Southern Avenue, Mount Auburn
DOB: 1916
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: A rotten roof, damaged water lines (possibly stolen), broken and missing windows, damaged cornice and gutters, trash and debris.

It was condemned in January 2009. In April, a criminal case was filed against its owner, who had obtained the long-vacant house through foreclosure. In May, a new owner emerged and took over the property.

The house was declared a public nuisance in June 2009, and the new owners applied for a demolition permit. It was razed privately. The previous owner pled no contest and was fined for court costs.
