Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/2/10

2795 Montana Avenue, Westwood
DOB: 1900
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Deteriorating gutters, garage roof collapse, defective chimney, a lack of protective paint, missing siding, and an accumulation of trash and discarded furniture.

The house was condemned in January 2006, declared a public nuisance in June 2009, and razed by owner WesBanco Inc. following asbestos abatement.

A criminal case against the person who owned the property prior to WesBanco resulted in a 180-day suspended sentence, two years of community control, $50 in fines, and $85 in court costs. The property was purchased by a Verona, Ky. resident on July 20, 2010 for $3,200.
