Wrecking Cincinnati, 6/22/10

2576 Liddell Street, North Fairmount
DOB: 1896
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: Deteriorated chimney; missing siding, windows, gutters, and downspouts; a lack of protective paint. It appears to have been abandoned and required City barricading on several occasions.

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

A criminal case was filed in May 2007, but dismissed five months later at the prosecutor's request. In late 2007, Discount Homes USA, LLC of Indianapolis purchased the property for $4,500. The assessed value of the house was only $1,000 at the time of demolition.
